Brady Corbet: 'VMAN' Breakout Star!
Here’s what the 23-year-old Martha Marcy May Marlene and Melancholia actor had to share with the mag:
On the status of auteurs: “Most Americans auteurs I know will probably spend the rest of their days in the same one bedroom apartment until the end of time or until they start directing tampon commercials on the side. This can be attributed to the complete lack of government support here, the lack of any Ministry of Culture. The American auteur relies solely on private equity to bring his or her vision alive, which makes for more soul crushing and much less money to work with.”
On creating short films: “I consider [filmmaker Michael] Haneke to be a bit of a creative godfather. He has always been extremely helpful over various projects over the years, even in ways he is probably not aware of. I remember seeing his films for the first time and thinking, ‘This is it. This makes sense to me.’”
