"If you get bored with nothing to do, you are not a writer." "We are in the business of reproducing reality from nothing. We are the biggest liars in the world, seeking truth."
Via IO9, from this lovely recap of del Toro's recent reading/talk in Portland.
I've also heard him interviewed recently on NPR and have decided I must read his books. Pan's Labyrinth is a masterwork of beauty and despair. And this is the director who made the Hellboy movies and will be filming Disney's Haunted Castle. And he plays left 4 dead with his kids.
How cool is that.
I love this man.
