Kiss him deadly

There was a long list of things that counted against us, like a gigantic bull’s eye on our chest. I think we were destined to have critics come after us — which is what they did at Sundance, too, with Donnie Darko. I’m used to it now, and in a way, the pattern sort of works. We’ve been joking that we’re gonna take The Box to the Venice Film Festival just so we can have that one bomb too.”
