In contrast to Islam, Vladimir Putin and his brand of authoritarian white conservative Christian Orthodoxy makes a perfect villain against which the multiculturalist, socially liberal, atheistic European Union leaders can unite its people.

Me cuesta imaginar a mis vecinos reunidos en la plaza del pueblo bajo el estandarte de una improvisada alianza contra las fuerzas del Kremlin, organizados en defensa de la Nueva Ortodoxia™ atea, multiculturalista y social-liberal. En todo caso, podría servir de inspiración para una película berlanguiana que, aun producida en España, incluso yo desearía ver.

(Cita de Nigel Farage isn’t the biggest threat to the Eurosceptic cause. Vladimir Putin is.)

El hombre debe tener el coraje de vivir de acuerdo con sus convicciones. Si usted acepta, como acepto yo absolutamente, que esta vida es todo lo que tenemos, que morimos como animales, que todo lo que nos rodea se pierde irrevocablemente, que nos hundimos en las tinieblas sin espereanza, esa convicción tiene que influir en la forma en que uno vive su vida.

En cuanto al primer encuentro entre John Carpenter y Donald Pleasance/Doctor Loomis:

DEADLINE: And financial pressures are what landed you a great actor like Donald Pleasence, who wasn’t your first choice but went on to make Dr. Loomis an iconic character.
CARPENTER: Wonderful man! I loved Donald a great deal. We were going to start the movie in a week or two, and he came to Los Angeles and I met him for lunch. He said, “I don’t know why I’m in this movie, and I don’t know who my character is.’ I was terrified. I hadn’t dealt with such an established movie actor, and I was a big fan of his work. He said, ‘The only reason I’m doing this movie is because I have alimony to pay, and my daughter in England is in a rock ‘n’ roll group and she said the music that you did for Assault On Precinct 13 is cool.’ But it turned out great.
