Usually when I critique a movie lots of folks like, they tell me, ‘It was just showing the way things are. It was real.’ And they do not want to hear it when I make the point that giving audiences what is real is precisely what movies do not do. They give the re-imagined, reinvented version of the real. It may look like something familiar, but in actuality it is a different universe from the world of the real. — @bellhooks, REEL TO REAL
