Interview with a Vampire… Lover

Wired Magazine has a great interview with Hobbit Director Guillermo del Toro on the Future of Film: [click image]

Director Guillermo del Toro

Wired: With Pan’s Labyrinth, you proved you can indulge your love of monsters and seek artistic credibility at the same time. Do you still get push-back from an industry that believes the science fiction/fantasy genre and “serious filmmaking” don’t mix?

del Toro: People think because you love genre you don’t know anything else. It’s condescending. If the emotion is provoked and the goals are achieved, what does it matter? Is Thomas Pynchon a more worthy read than Stephen King? It depends on the afternoon. And I love Kurt Vonnegut. He threads the profane and irreverent with the profound and soul-searing.
