As new images from Mommy arrive, watch Xavier Dolan discuss making the film, reading every review, a recent nervous breakdown, and more in a 25-minute conversation at TIFF.
“I’m putting the cast together right now, it’s going to be my most ambitious film, and I’m really just going to go for it. It’s some next level shit. It’s a revenge movie, a sprawling, very intense… I don’t want to give away too much, but we’re probably going to start shooting in Miami after the New Year. I’m goin’ for it.”

"You know I like the continuity, because you have a special tension. Everybody is much more concentrated than when you have these short takes. And I like very much to build things, to conceive the scenes, how we can turn around somebody, you know, all the movements implied in these shots. It’s like a play, and how we can tell something, tell something about life…Because it’s very important to make the film a real psychological process."
- Bela Tarr (On why he likes long takes)

But I have infinite tenderness for you. I always will. All my life long.
Thank you. The font that I used is called Chicken Scratch, I think. It’s been a few months since post, but I think that might be it.
