Bonus Trivia

.

Was inspired in his life choices by the film "Kings of the Road."

.

"Revenge movies tend to be painted in very broad strokes. They’re usually populated by characters who are extremes – often even caricatures. By painting the world in this extreme black-and-white relief the protagonist is empowered with a moral righteousness which allows us, as viewers, to feel good about cheering them on as they slaughter the bad guys. It’s an exercise that allows us to indulge our own violent fantasies and it can make for a very satisfying viewing experience (as Tarantino has amply demonstrated), but rarely are situations in life this simple. With Girls Against Boys I was interested in exploring the grey areas – the collateral damage, the moral ambiguity, and the way violence effects the perpetrator as well as the victim. The violent impulse is complex and imprecise and rarely provides the kind of pure catharsis we want." - from bloodydisgusting.com, Jan. 31, 2013
