-> ''What directors--especially the good ones -- put into their films is different from what comes out of the viewing of those films. Directors are an authority on the former, [[TropesAreTools which is why an interview with a good director is almost always worthwhile]]. But, when it comes to the experience of watching a film, the director doesn’t know any more or any better than the average viewer. One great director who understands this is Creator/JeanLucGodard, who discussed the matter with me when I interviewed him in 2000. We were talking about “La Chinoise,” his 1967 collage-like drama about a cell of young Maoists in Paris and [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized their inclinations toward political violence]], which, I thought, he filmed with a significant degree [[GrayAndGreyMorality of critical distance]]. He agreed, but said that, at the time of the filming, his critical perspective was 'unconscious,' adding, "My unconscious was right, but it’s the cinema that was right...often what [[UsefulNotes/TheAuteurTheory the auteur says]] is even less right, because the auteur is in what he does, not in what he says."''

-> "I have a rule that, even if I say something, 'it ain't canon if it ain't in the comic'. Therefore, it's technically canon that it's uncertain whether the TF gun had any impact on Elliot's level of comfort while a girl. This is in spite of the fact that I am typing [[TheRant right here and now]] that, in Elliot's case, that's just how Elliot is, and how Elliot would be even if the TF gun didn't do a single thing to help people adapt to new forms.\\
But that's just speculation on my part as the author of the comic."

-> Juan Oregon, a man from Alicante (Spain), 47, announced last Friday that he was terminating the process of writing his first novel, which he has been working at since last January. The novel he has written is "LightInAugust", the immortal work published in 1932 by American author Creator/WilliamFaulkner.
-> "It is his first novel and he writes ‘Light in August’ by William Faulkner, nothing more, nothing less," the proud wife of this administrative assistant said to the press. Oregon, which has been already stated as the great promise of the Spanish letters, began his literary activity “unpretentiously" earlier this year.
-> "For Faulkner this was his seventh novel, however my husband has written it at his first try," insists the wife.
-> "Look, he could have written any work of [[TakeThat Terence Moix or anyone else’s mediocrity]], but no, he goes and writes a novel by Faulkner, William Faulkner. I love Faulkner and in this country we all feel genuine devotion by Faulkner," the woman reiterated, sparing no praise for her husband, who was something flushed.
-> The book, which is identical, word for word, the translation of "LightInAugust" Peter Leucona did for Goyanarte publishing in 1952, and that is being currently published by Alfaguara publishing, could mark the narrative of Spain just like Faulkner determined the evolution of American literature.
-> "The novel is exceptional, truly exceptional, something out of the ordinary," says Antonia Cifuentes, editor of Catedra publishing and one of the few people who had access to Juan’s manuscript.
-> According to her, the novel is as good as the one written by Faulkner but [[InTheOriginalKlingon with the added value that a Spanish man has been able to write]] the "[[UsefulNotes/GreatAmericanNovel Great American Novel]]" without leaving Alicante.

-> "It matters who controls the narrative. Lewis says Susan was vein and conceited, Lewis says Susan cared only about material things and appearances, Lewis says Susan was a “rather silly” young woman. But did anyone ask Susan? What was Susan’s story? Where is Susan’s voice? It’s absent. She’s silent. She is given no opportunity to defend herself, to tell her side of the story. And that, quite frankly, is why many young women in my situation identify with Susan. It’s not that we didn’t realize Lewis said Susan’s problem was conceit. It’s that we know what it’s like to have authority figures lie about what happened to us."
