I have always been impressed when I see interviews with Marilyn Manson. I don't particularly like his music, nor do I dislike it. But, he is different and says what is on his mind...which are mostly insightful comments about our culture and how we live. Who can forget in Bowling For Columbine when he boiled down the age we live in to "Fear and Consumption" one of the most powerful moments in a powerful film.
See this interview (both parts) with Henry Rollins on IFC. It is worth it whether you like him or not...he defines our age like no other artist. He makes me think: what I am doing? Is it contributing to society? How can I make a difference? Am I really standing up? How can I do better? There are not many folks today who can inspire me so, but he does it every single time I see him on screen. Henry Rollins is also very good.
