"You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that’s what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant… Oh, fuck it." - The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
↳ “Ever since I can remember, acting is what has made me feel free, entirely, it really makes me emotional, but it’s really where I’m happy hands down. Between ‘action’ and ‘cut’ is where I feel like me completely. That’s where my energy comes from.”
The emotional themes are not about devastation or pining or, you know, ‘I can’t live without you’. Because I’ve learnt, after 18 months of being single, that I can live without anyone. And, of course, there are going to be songs about love. But it’s not to the level of complete and utter chaotic devastation that you saw on Red. I don’t think I could make that album twice. I don’t think I would ever want to.
