Adrian Tomine's Dream Double Feature

Series Site

"'For the past year or so, I’ve been engaged in several different Sisyphean tasks related to the strange business of film and television. Throughout the process, the two films that kept popping into my mind were The King of Comedy and Adaptation. I’d be nervously perched in the reception area of some lavish office building, and all I could think was that I’d somehow transformed from a respectable cartoonist/illustrator into a cringe-inducing pest like Rupert Pupkin. Or I’d be sitting in a restaurant, meeting with someone of importance within the industry, and I’d imagine that person looking across the table and seeing an Asian version of Nicolas Cage’s sweat-drenched portrayal of Charlie Kaufman.'"-Adrian Tomine, for Metrograph
