Quote of the Day: David Cronenberg on Superhero Films
"And certainly, I've made the horror films and people say, "Can you make a horror film also an art film?" And I would say, 'Yeah, I think you can.' But a superhero movie, by definition, you know, it's comic book. It's for kids. It's adolescent in its core. That has always been its appeal, and I think people who are saying, you know, 'Dark Knight Rises is, you know, supreme cinema art,' I don't think they know what the f**k they're talking about."
