This chapter is a transcript of an interview with Todd Solondz. It mainly discusses his filmography and his career as well as his personal thoughts on the art of cinema. A major running theme throughout this interview is the consistency inherent in his work. The topography, character, and temporality of his films articulate a singular, if not always totally consistent world. The chapter delves into why that is and how Solondz approaches his work to achieve—whether deliberately or otherwise—such effects in his films. In the end, Solondz states that his engagement with his audience is one of invalidation, in other words, to encourage his audience “to question, to analyze, to open up.”

Keywords:   Todd Solondz, interview, cinema, filmography, film career, films, art of cinema
