It is official: Bryan Fuller is the sweetest guy in the world. He is the guy who believes that no matter your food preferences, you should eat whatever you are offered when you are a guest because it is rude not to. He talks Klingon, wears a Chewbacca bathrobe, has all kinds of collectibles and loves Comic-Con. In this interview he discusses all things pop culture. He talks about projects he’s worked on like Star Trek, Heroes, Dead like me, Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls and Hannibal. He lists a top 3 of all time favorite horror films, and he explains how watching “Alien” led to him dropping his studies in psychology and becoming a writer. He talks about films and tv series he loves like Battlestar Galactica, Back to the Future, Manhunter, Psycho, and North by Northwest. He loves the fandom, and finds the psychology of the slash fiction’s appeal very interesting. He discusses the sociopathology of “Hannibal” and he explains how Will Graham’s shame and guilt work as a moral compass for both the show and the audience. He also expresses his love for Tim Burton and his preference for Burton’s Batman returns film as opposed to Nolan’s Dark Night ones. He believes that the comedian Eddie Izzard “is more of a philosopher than a comedian” and he wants to see a third Ghostbusters movie. Finally, he talks about the Truffaut audio interview with Hitchcock and he explains how Hitchcock’s films may sometimes lack in “plot logic” but they have an “emotional logic”, which he seems to be striving for in his shows as well.
A must watch for every Hannibal and/or Bryan Fuller fan.
