On art

Robert Redford recently noted in an interview for his upcoming movie that after All the President’s Men he thought there would be no more [to paraphrase] crookedness in politics, but now he sees that didn’t happen, and he’s no longer trying to change people’s minds. Art does not change politics – not movies, not music, not books – not directly. It may impact individual lives here and there but it doesn’t uproot systems. For that you need revolutions, and who can ever say definitively when and where one of those began?
