  • Interviewer:So I have to ask you this. The scene where one of your followers gave up his life...
  • James:Yes, Charlie. Beautifully done.
  • Interviewer:That whole sequence was the most beautiful...
  • James:And yet.
  • Interviewer:And almost borderline erotic the way it slowly unfolded...
  • James:And yet...
  • Interviewer:What was it like filming something like that?
  • James:Well we wanted to make it operatic. We wanted to /make/ it borderline erotic. We wanted to make it all those very complicated things and that man has felt that that was the way he wanted to express himself, you know. And it's not, you know what, it's not that far fetched.
