The mirror is in every room in the ballet world, because ballet dancers are constantly looking at themselves, studying themselves, and maybe even judging themselves. All the time. So it was very clear to me that the mirror was a major character in this film. And the film is also about doubles. Your reflection is your double, isn’t it? So it just became a really important part of the film. And very early on we started to think of all the different types of tricks we could do with mirrors. - Darren Aronofsky
Yes, all men must die, but we are not men.
I have to say that Peaches death has really rattled me today. I woke up and was in shock and have continued to feel so all day. This engaging, beautiful woman was so full of life and I had admired her for many years. My heart goes out to her family. Her tragically short life makes one realize how we really have to seize each day and not live for the future but live for the now. Rest In Peace Peaches, you will be missed.

"I get pretty terrified, to be honest, when I’m on tour. You really have to muster a lot of ego to go out there, which I find rather draining. In fact you have to muster an enormous ego to go out and be bigger than a huge crowd of people. It’s hard enough to do that with four or five people, let alone 20,000. You know sometimes I just want to curl up on stage and lie there for a while - it’s weird." - Michael Hutchence
I need perfection
Some twisted selection
That tangles me

Sometimes it’s hard to say no. Ultimately, if you stick to your guns, you have the career that you want. Don’t get me wrong. I love a good payday and I’ll do films for fun. But ultimately my main goal is to do good work. If it doesn’t pay well, so be it. — Philip Seymour Hoffman
