Crispin Glover And The Big Upheaval.

“I make it quite clear that What is it? is not a film about Down’s Syndrome but my psychological reaction to the corporate restraints that have happened in the last 20 to 30 years in film making. Specifically anything that can possibly make an audience uncomfortable is necessarily excised or the film will not be corporately funded or distributed. This is damaging to the culture because it is the very moment when an audience member sits back in their chair looks up at the screen and thinks to [themself] “Is this right what I am watching? Is this wrong what I am watching? Should I be here? Should the filmmaker have made this? What is it and that is the title of the film.”

What is it that is taboo in the culture? What does it mean that taboo has been ubiquitously excised in this culture’s media? What does it mean to the culture when it does not properly process taboo in its media? It is a bad thing … when questions are not being asked because these kinds of questions are when people are having a truly educational experience. For the culture to not be able to ask questions leads towards a non educational experience and that is what is happening in this culture."

— Crispin Glover

I went to An Evening With Crispin Glover on Wednesday and i came home feeling very much inspired.
