Quotable: Christine Vachon

There will always be tent-pole, franchise trilogies to plaster every available surface of our culture. Romantic comedies will continue to come out of a tube, every spring and fall. Right now, and for the foreseeable future, a car is exploding on screen somewhere, a drug deal is going bad, a couple are overcoming the obstacles between them and true love. The slate of every studio looks pretty much the same, year to year. But the hunger for a surprise, for a story with an unconventional structure or politics or ending, stays with us because moviegoers crave unpredictability. It looks like life.
