i love this song just as much today as i did the first time i ever heard it (1990?). i still get the tingles.
How about the role humor plays in your films? I find most of your work immensely funny.
You must never be embarrassed about finding something funny in a dramatic moment, because life itself is like that. It’s something that belongs very much to American culture, which robes the ability to react. The contrary happens in Spanish culture. Pain is always mixed with humor and tragedy is always part of humor, too. It’s like life—humor makes it more palpable, more livable. A movie is like a person. You understand a person better as you talk to them and get familiar with someone. I know a movie is something to be seen and forgotten with the passing of time, but The Skin I Live In demands a special kind of attention.
