It’s not a flashback! It’s two competing, simultaneous nows. Which is more to me what it feels like to remember traumatic moments. They feel like now. They exist simultaneously in your life, and you live them over and over again in a circle. That’s why I think it’s fair in Station Eleven.
Also, Lori Petty (who is in Station Eleven) has a lot of funny comments in this interview about her career:
So there's this scene (in Point Break) where we wake up on the beach after we supposedly made love. Keanu goes, "Oh, I'm late. Oh shit, I'm so fucking late,” and then he gets up and leans over the top of me and he gives me a kiss, and then he runs off. And then Kathryn [Bigelow]’s like, "Reset." And she looks at me and I look at her. I'm like, "I got it." Because that was too short. She shared a look. So he gets on top of me again, gives me a kiss. He says, "I'm so late. I've got to go." Well, what you can't see off-frame is I put my fingers in his belt loops. Now watch next time. He tries to get up and I pull him down. But you can't tell I pulled him down. He just laughed.
Do you still surf?
I did not like surfing even when I was surfing.
