Cate Blanchett as Katharine Hepburn, The Aviator (2004)
"Movies are movies, Howard. Not life. Now the stage—the stage is real. Real flesh and blood. Human beings right out there in front of you, buster. Can’t look away. Can’t munch popcorn. That would be rude. Oh, I adore the theater. Only alive on-stage."

I wanted to put a bullet between the eyes of every panda who wouldn’t screw to save his species, I wanted to dump oil over all those French beaches I’d never see, I wanted to breathe smoke. I felt like destroying something beautiful.
Scenes From The Suburbs (2011) dir. Spike Jonze
"I wish I could remember every little moment, but I can’t. Why do I only remember the moments that I do?"
Or that would be my headline instead of the one there on the original article in French, the only formal news source outside of a Twitter post from the label. As that headline shows, she will forever be seen solely as ‘the other woman’ in Ian Curtis’s life, when a far better, encompassing view would be to see her, first and foremost, as a big fan of music who helped organize and book many shows in the early eighties at the Plan K club in Brussels, which led to the cofounding of Crépuscule with Michel Duval. That right there is a legacy; it is not always about the public figures as such, much less the boys in the bands. This translation of an article from a few years back has more of her thoughts and I recommend her appearances in James Nice’s Shadowplayers book/DVD and Lindsey Reade and Mick Middles’s Torn Apart book as well. She leaves behind a family, and was only 56.
