Edward Norton on Wes Anderson’s films:

"What I’ve loved about Wes from the get-go [is] — the whimsy, the incredible humor … but there’s always these moments of pathos that come in and sideswipe you. Every time I watch The Royal Tenenbaums, I’m laughing and laughing and then for whatever reason, as soon as there’s that scene where [Richie Tenenbaum] releases the falcon or the hawk over the city and they play that Velvet Underground song, I tear up every single time. … I can’t explain it.
I’ve come to think that a lot of Wes’ movies are about the same thing, which is maybe people struggling with the way that the family that you’re born into fails you or you don’t have the family that you want, so you go and create the family that you need. So many of the characters in Wes’ movies are essentially creating alternative communities that support them. I think there’s something really sweet in that idea.”

My dad accidentally threw a cheese grater at me so I left the room and he yelled “come back here you ungrateful child” while laughing hysterically

Update my mom just told me that if I had even a ‘shred’ of decency I would go back in there

Update #2: my dad apologized and told me he had only done it for ‘the grater good’
