Todd Haynes on old movies

“Natasha Lyonne said to me recently, ‘I don’t like watching new movies because it feels like work. I’m doing my work. I watch old movies for inspiration.’ I’m like, ‘Oh my God, girlfriend, that is so much how I feel.’ I admire people who are seeing everything new and there’s great stuff all the time, especially coming out of European cinema or Asian cinema or Latin cinema. But I live in the world of Turner Classic Movies. There’ll be movies every month that have never even been broadcast before. I’m just like, Holy shit. It’s the most remarkable resource.”
