Michel Gondry : Commentary on Being John Malkovich

Michel Gondry, filmmaker, was asked to provide a commentary on Spike Jonze’s Being John Malkovich. This is a snippet:

Gondry on the introduction of Mr. Lester: 

“I don’t know who this actor is, I bet he’s not alive anymore. It’s kinda gross to watch movies, everyone is dead… I remember watching the movie and thinking the shoes of the guy survived the guy, the guy was dead, but maybe his shoes were somewhere still functioning. Anyway, I’m supposed to be talking about this movie… who is this actor? [Gondry is told it’s Orson Bean] Is he still alive… [a few moments pass] Great news, Orson Bean is still alive.”
