Cinema Society and John Hardy Host a Screening of ‘Blindness’
Chelsea Cinemas. September 22, 2008. By Bennett Marcus
There’s a lot of fake poop in this movie. What’s it made out of?
“Um … I’m not going to go there, man.”
Your character was blind. Did you ever fall during rehearsal?
“At one point I had misplaced my bag, and then I couldn’t find it. I thought someone had purposely taken it to push the exercise to another limit.”
Julianne Moore wouldn’t talk to us about the poop.
“She’s more discreet than I am. But we all went there.”
All the actors played blind characters. What were rehearsals like?
“We did a lot of rehearsals in a blindfold.”
Did you lose your luggage on the way to Milan Fashion Week?
“Never the jewelry, because the jewelry is always with me. If the rest gets lost, it doesn’t matter.”
—Guy Bedarida, designer
What would you prefer to never see again in New York?
Some California voters are trying to ban the same-sex marriage legislation.
“America should try to ruin as many lives as possible, because the Bush administration is doing so well at it.”
What do you wish you didn’t have to see people wearing?
“Crocs. Now that it’s getting colder they’ll have to abandon them, or do something even more heinous, which is wear them with socks.”
Is there anything in New York you wish you never had to see again?
Has the economic situation made anyone scale back their Fashion Week plans?
“People are going to have to buy a lot of nice new clothes to go on all the job interviews that they need to.”
