"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"Everybody seems like they’re wondering. On a small level, in their own lives, people are thinking about what might have been if they’d made a slightly different decision or about how one decision can cascade through the rest of your life and impact everything else that you do. So, yes, I’m really interested in regret."
