They Hate Interviews, PS

("No Country for Old Men" - Best Picture)
COEN BROS: We don't trade off. We've always done movies the same way, and basically we are both on all sides at all times and whoever is closest that's being asked, answers it. So there's no real division of labor, and it's very collaborative, just like the rest of movie making is, really. It's a collaborative process from top to bottom. So our collaboration is just another example of that.
A YEAR OF INTERESTING MOVIES, SO THEY THINK
...it was a special year in respect that I thought that, you know, it's almost like a cliche but all the movies nominated this year were really interesting to me personally and that is not always the case. And I thought all of them to me, personally, I thought were really fantastically good movies. I, in terms of sort of parsing the themes, it's not something we really do amongst ourselves or when we are doing interviews either. We adapted a novel by a great American novelist, Cormac McCarthy, and we are trying to do justice to the novel, but beyond that, we're really ones to sort of parse the themes of the material.
IT MAY BE VIOLENT, BUT THEY LIKED THE SUBJECT MATTER --
It's a serious movie, but it has big genre underpinnings, but I think it has a real beating heart, and anything like that is going to be in some respects kind of spiky and challenging, but it has been incredibly satisfying.
AND THEY DON'T FEEL SPECIAL EVEN THOUGH THEY JUST WON MULTIPLE OSCARS, PS
Oh, boy. You know. Probably Joel as well, trying not to think about it. It's kind of God. [Owe|Oh]. [Owe|Oh].
SCREENMANCER thanks the ACADEMY and OSCAR(R)
