Charlie Kaufman

Constantly talking isn't necessarily communicating.More Charlie Kaufman [08/02/2011 08:08:47]
I was trying to figure out what a memory feels like.More Charlie Kaufman [08/02/2011 08:08:58]
I'm not a celebrity. I'm intentionally and defiantly not a celebrity. I don't have any interest in it. I don't have any talent for it. I keep my personal life out of my public life as cleanly as I can.More Charlie Kaufman [08/02/2011 08:08:04]
So when I write characters and situations and relationships, I try to sort of utilize what I know about the world, limited as it is, and what I hear from my friends and see with my relatives.More Charlie Kaufman [08/02/2011 08:08:10]
There's no way to approach anything in an objective way. We're completely subjective our view of the world is completely controlled by who we are as human beings, as men or women, by our age, our history, our profession, by the state of the world.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
If you create something that is asking for people to respond as they're going to respond, you have to allow them to respond as they're going to respond. Some of the people are going to be uninterested and some people are going to be mad for some reason, which is their business. That's just the way the world is.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I think generally I'm kind of interested in subjective experience, what goes on inside someone's head, that being all they really know of the world.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Directing is a more pragmatic experience, where you have to deal with the restrictions of time and money that force you to make certain decisions you don't have to make when you're writing.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
When I'm writing, I'm trying to immerse myself in the chaos of an emotional experience, rather than separate myself from it and look back at it from a distance with clarity and tell it as a story. Because that's how life is lived, you know?More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I think you just assume that your memory is just sort of a video playback of your experience, but it's nothing like that at all. It's a complete refabrication of an event and a lot of it is made up, because you're filling in spaces.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I've had to deal, a lot, with my own sense of intimidation at meeting famous people - especially actors, but really any famous people.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
As a writer, or as a filmmaker, you have to present yourself, and part of what yourself is is what you're interested in, or what you think is funny, or what you think is sad, or what you think is horrible.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I have a lot of health anxiety.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I do like escapism. I like going to the movies on a Friday night and seeing something fun.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I really don't have any solutions and I don't like movies that do.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I've kind of come to the conclusion that what passes for realism in movies has nothing to do with reality and that my stuff is more realistic than that.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
In a lot of movies, especially big studio ones, they're not constructed in any other way than to get people to like them and then tell their friends. It's a product.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I wanted to deal with someone's idea of their relationship.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'm not into extreme sports or something. I just live a quiet life.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'm interested in trying to explore what I think is the truth at a given time in my life, and part of the process of being honest is - in my mind - talking about the idea that you're watching a movie. You're sitting here watching a movie. And I like that. It appeals to me intellectually, and also in a way I can't even explain.More Charlie Kaufman [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I think that people have expectations of themselves and other people that are based on these fictions that are presented to them as the way human life and relationships could be, in some sort of weird, ideal world, but they never are. So you're constantly being shown this garbage and you can't get there.More Charlie Kaufman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Constantly talking isn't necessarily communicating.More Charlie Kaufman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I do have, at different times, a certain kind of self-consciousness in the world, an insecurity.More Charlie Kaufman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You are what you love. Not what loves you.More Charlie Kaufman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
