there is so much i need to know about this photograph
From Larissa MacFarquhar’s 2003 Profile of Quentin Tarantino:
“For every monologue he writes about an old movie or TV show, he writes one about European hamburgers or tipping waitresses or eating pork. … The love of minutiae, like the love of pop culture, is a form of nostalgia—a junk-food version of Proust’s madeleine. But, unlike madeleine-nostalgia—nostalgia for a lost world, an unrecoverable childhood—minutiae-nostalgia is nostalgia for a world that still exists, for a life you’re still living.”
Take a look at more classic New Yorker stories about filmmakers.
