When we write, we dream of what success looks like. Then success happens and we’re left wondering where we went wrong. This is an interesting write-up of what it was like working on A.I. with Stanley Kubrick. It seems that the strange worlds of his films were matched only by the strange world of himself.
I don’t know how long I could have maintained self-control in the environment described by Ian Watson, but I give him much credit for both surviving and then writing about it.
