I do not know. We live in a world in which the only utopian visions arrive in commercial breaks: magical visions of an impossibly hospitable world, peopled by bright-eyed attractive men, women, children… Where nobody dies… Where all it takes is cheap, easily available product - a packet of salted peanuts or a new type of carpet cleaner to bring immediate, undiluted joy… And I thought that was honest. I thought I was being honest. In my worlds people died. I thought I was telling the truth, I thought… They were actors.
Anger because nothing I ever created was as good as it could have been, should have been. Was in my head. Everything I did. Everything was leading up to this next film. That would have been the one I got right. If I’d only had the time. Where is it? What was it I said in the treatment? “It will be a celebration of humanity, of the continuance of life, of human folly”. Human folly? Sure... I leave a paper-trail behind me, like a child lost in the woods, Pacing, and pacing, and pacing. Trying to find something to hold onto.
When it goes, I turn on the television. What does Chernobyl mean in English? That's right. Wormwood. All there, in the Revelation of St. John the Divine, on Patmos. It’s one of the symbols. Signs and portents. We’re living in the last days. I mean, take credit cards. Revelation, chapter 13 verse 17, that no man might buy or sell, save he had the mark, of the name of the beast, or the number of his name. It's hard to believe, isn’t it? A man, two thousand years ago, predicting credit cards. But he wasn’t a mere man.
