Patrick Goddard “Go Professional” at Seventeen, London
SAM: Ok so you’re here now, and I can see you’ve reinvented yourself as a scruffy working- class-hero-type in adult life
SAM: And you’re going to shake the very foundations of Capitalism with your edgy banker-bashing artist film. And you’re hoping that I will, erm… that I will play the villain in your little morality tale of good verses evil.
PATRICK: I’m not going to Martin Bashir you Sam, that’s not really what I’m…
SAM: OK phew! that’s good because an artist making a film about anti-capitalism or whatever is about as transgressive as a child telling its mum that its brushed its teeth when in fact it hasn’t, so erm… yeah.
