"Iñárritu, who in the past has been nothing if not sincere to the point of self-seriousness, suddenly shows us not just his anarchic, uproarious, irreverent sense of humor, but his mischief, not to mention an almost impish delight in the further possibilities of a medium he’d already mastered. So far from resting on his laurels, Iñárritu has, to echo one of the film’s central tenets, risked something.

What a terrible thing to process! Every. Day. And then you go to sleep. But then sometimes,” he says, leaning forward, “things can suspend themselves for like a minute, and then every once in a while there’s something where you find a connection.”
Adam Driver is hot? Adam Driver is hot. When did I start thinking this? After season 3 of Girls? Or right after reading this quote? Maybe.
