Yesterday's Q&A 'session' was the taint on everything that happened in previous 2 hours.
If earlier session was any indication that people were there for Nolan
, the Q&A confirmed it.
The event was about film, not Nolan's filmography.
After answering 3 questions from twitter, audiences were asked for their questions. And this opened the floodgates of cringe.
First there was a guy who had shot a documentary about Taj Mahal in IMAX (but didn't finish it
(IDK his name, don't blame me. I'm an IT drone, not some art student)).
Then there was another guy who proudly said he was a magician and asked about CGI and practical effects.
Third, I forgot who it was or what he asked (DoctorRadiohead, remind me), and you'll know why.
Then the mike found itself in hand of a 'massive' Nolan fanboy who spent almost 4 minutes talking about 1. his Batline (WiFi I guess) 2. His views about Bruce Wayne and Batman 3. His academic journey before asking about Bruce vs Batman person.
MOTHER!FUCKER! You don't have to ask that to Nolan, HE HAS FUCKING SPOKEN ABOUT IT ALREADY YOU MASSIVE DOUCHE.
But it wasn't over yet. Sensing danger in continuing any further, one last question was given to a girl who had fucking run all the way to the stage (RED ALERT
) who then spoke about how she had come all the way from Bangalore and her friend (or brother I guess. Fuck me I was cringing so hard I was looking at my shoes instead) had written a book about Nolan and if he didn't take it, it will make her cry! Fucking fuck! I avoid Bollywood movies at all cost but I couldn't escape it's bullshit. Fuuuuuck! Have some self respect and professionalism.
That was the last straw on Nolan's back and he almost ran away to avoid further hysteria.
