Michel Gondry: “I don’t believe in superheroes, I think it’s a worse way of being a nerd”
Amy Liprot, on The Guardian, introducing the set-up for this very interesting Michel Gondry’s interview, focusing in his new show, Kidding, starring Jim Carrey.
On an ordinary morning in Los Angeles, where the 55-year-old French film-maker recently finished work on the dark comedy series Kidding, which starts on Sky Atlantic on 29 November, Gondry just wants a simple coffee and croissant. But his sugar packet won’t open and neither will the strawberry jam. After much ripping and stabbing, his side of the table is coated in sticky crystals and his butter knife looks like a murder weapon. Gondry waves away the chaos. His sticky, human fingerprints are on everything he touches — why not his breakfast, too?
What a brilliant intro.
