A couple weekend quickies



“Battlefield Earth” is the pinnacle. It’s a pure film, pure art. You can put it on, and within seconds of having put it on, you forget you’re watching a movie and you walk off and make toast or something. Nothing memorable happens. It’s just … two hours are all of a sudden just gone. Which is not like a movie like “The Postman,” which has a whole different effect. That one stretches time. You’re like, Oh, man, I’m getting older as I’m watching this. I’ve missed three birthdays.” Tool’s Maynard James Keenan
