Rockwell on Jesse James

I post this for two reasons, because it's nice to see a beautiful quote from Sam Rockwell about his pride and confidence in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and because I didn't realize the Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips had a blog.

Rockwell's quote:

"That film, he says, 'is going to age well. I guess the studio people know what they’re doing, because they didn’t have a lot of faith in it. So financially they might’ve been right. But artistically they’re wrong, in my opinion. And I don’t really give a [rip] about the financial end. I mean, I do, of course; I want the movies to be seen. But I don’t like it when people validate films by their financial success.' "
