Kirsten Dunst on the state of film: ‘Creative people are blossoming on television’

Kirsten Dunst has been a cinema staple since she made her film debut in Woody Allen’s Oedipus Wrecks at the age of 6, but now, she’s headed to television with the upcoming season two premiere of Fargo on Oct. 12. And in a new interview with The Guardian, that’s exactly where Dunst says she wants to be.

“People don’t go to the cinema unless it’s an event any more,” she said. “So the movie industry is in a weird place, for sure, and the creative people are blossoming on television.”

Dunst added that when it comes to big-budget blockbusters, all the money and studio input can stifle creativity. “There are just too many movies being made, I think,” she said. “So many of them get lost. Too many cooks in the kitchen — the studio’s editing it, the producers are editing it, the director’s editing, too. But everyone has their hand in it, so whose movie is it at the end of the day?”

“People don’t need all the money they’re using,” she added. “That’s the other thing: when you have too much time, too much money, the creative starts to slip away. It just does.”
