Juliet (horrified): He has a beard. A beard!

Nurse (chuckling): Oh, nothing wrong with a beard, love… Get one of them rubbing up and down your back…

(from Romeo and Juliet: a Novel , chapter 10)

I wonder…. did David Hewson make fun of us? I bet Richard had some fun, reading this bit and knowing his fandom…

In Hollywood, more often than not, they’re making more kind of traditional films, stories that are understood by people. And the entire story is understood. And they become worried if even for one small moment something happens that is not understood by everyone. But what’s so fantastic is to get down into areas where things are abstract and where things are felt, or understood in an intuitive way that, you can’t, you know, put a microphone to somebody at the theatre and say ‘Did you understand that?’ but they come out with a strange, fantastic feeling and they can carry that, and it opens some little door or something that’s magical and that’s the power that film has.
