In an EW piece called “Romancing The Rhinestone” (included only in 3.15 print version), Adam Markowitz does a q & a with Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, the costars of Steven Soderbergh‘s Behind The Candelabra (HBO, 5.26). Douglas plays the closeted Liberace and Damon his much-younger lover, Scott Thorson…but everyone knows that. The thing that got me in the interview has nothing to do with the film. Markowitz asks what Douglas and Damon “think of the possibility of somebody making a movie of your life?,” and Damon answers, “Movies will be dead by then.”
Are we all listening? The well-connected Damon sees and hears everything, and he honestly believes that 20 or 30 years hence movies as we know them will no longer exist.
