Ghost time

“I wanted it to be a movie about observation. I can watch someone watching something for a long time ... I knew that there would be this patience to the movie, this patient pace, and that time would play a big part of it. That is one of the big things that differentiates film from other forms of visual art, because when you go to a museum and look at a painting or look at a photograph, you are determining how long you look at that. It’s up to you. When you watch a film, it’s up to the film-maker.”
