Citatblogg: Baz Luhrmann om "Australia"

Claire Danes, från Luhrmanns "RomeoJuliet" (inte från vilken scen som helst heller.)

Baz, his own damn self.

Leo DiCaprio, också från "RomeoJuliet"

Mitt planlösa surfande av wikipedia tog mig nyligen till en bra intervju med Moulin Rouge-regissören Baz Luhrmann. Nyhetsvärdet är kanske lågt - från i januari i år - men jag gillar vad Baz säger:

CNN: What is the relationship between Australians and their environment?

Baz: You need to understand that it's bigger than you, it'll always be bigger than you and you should never try and subjugate it. You have to learn to live with it. Part of that is the danger of it. No matter what your point of view is you have to accept it and become part of it. And I think that that's one of the bigger themes of [the movie] "Australia."

Gillar det där temat. Gillar att det kommer att blandas upp med kärlekshistorien:

Baz: It's a sweeping romantic epic, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman, that uses the landscape of Australia to express the emotions of the character. It will reinvestigate the idea of the mythical Australia; of the metaphor of Australia to the rest of the world.

I'm embarking on this huge Australian piece because it puts me back in the land which is my birth land and my home. I've traveled around the world to so many cities and fallen in love with all kinds of places but it's great to reconnect with your own heart.

Baz om hemstaden :

CNN: If Sydney were a person, what would it be like?

Baz: Sydney is rather like an arrogant lover. When it rains it can deny you its love and you can find it hard to relate to. It's not a place that's built to be rainy or cold. But when the sun comes out, it bats its eyelids, it's glamorous, beautiful, attractive, smart, and it's very hard to get away from its magnetic pull. And like a fascinating creature, it also has this underbelly, which you find the more time you spend with it.
