Keanu quote of the day

ON IMPROVISATION AND FORMALISM:

"Robert [Downey Jr.] and Woody [Harrelson] and I came out, and all in all I think we had about two weeks of rehearsals. Richard [Linklater] would incorporate riffs that people were doing into the script, so there wasn’t a lot of dialogue improvisation on set, which is cool. That gave it a formality that I think Philip K. Dick would have appreciated. Because it felt organic to the material itself. There’s a feeling both of improvisation and of formalism to his writing, and to his camera, which is entertaining, but there’s also beauty there. There’s a beauty to the words in his scripts and in the performances he gets from his performers."
