- You have been called many things... Pope of Trash... Prince of Puke... How do you describe yourself?
I would describe myself as a writer that hopes to take you into my world and help you feel a little safer.
- You haven’t made a film for a few years. Is there a place in the industry for cult filmmakers?
The worst thing you can do is make a cult movie. That means you got three great reviews and nobody went. An art film means it got a lot of good reviews and nobody went. There is no such thing as a counter culture now. What used to be considered that is commercial now.
- You are not on Twitter but your moustache has an account.
If my moustache has its own Twitter account so be it. I don’t have one because A) if I’m going to write clever things I want to put them in a book so I get paid and B) I have friends, I’m not looking for new ones.
