You know what’s inside me? Is someone who’s twenty-nine years old and has grown up on movies and television, do you know what I mean? So that’s there on display: a sort of channel-changing mentality, maybe that’s why there’s so many different stories, do you know what I mean? To kind of reflect, in a way, TV’s information overload in a movie.
