You don’t think he’s a creep? He’s like skulking in there in a bookstore? Are you kidding? He’s telling her who she is! It’s somewhat sadistic, right? I mean he’s already written her dialogue for her. He comes up to her and he’s talking and what he’s saying is just like a mouthful of what he thinks she’s thinking. And she goes, ‘Yeah, I’ll go along, I’ll be your projection,’ you know?
I like the interview Willa Paskin did with Parker Posey about last night’s Louie episode because Posey doesn’t let Louis’ character off the hook (let’s assume for a second that he’s playing a character, alright?). Maybe it’s my fault for reading these things in the first place, but I’ve read too many recaps and tweets about the episode that calls into question Posey’s character by calling her a Manic Pixie Dream Girl (which might be true) while letting Louis(’ character) off the hook entirely by not even touching on his flaws at all. Am I thinking too much about how people write about fictional characters? Don’t let me know!
