On the differences between Hammett's stories and the movies that were made from them
"In some respects [Hammett's stories] were darker, but the big difference that you see between the Hammett story and the produced movie has to do with the drinking and the sexuality, but especially the sexuality. It was a time in which the Motion Picture Association had developed the code of decency. A character named Joseph Breen was the appointed censor. When he saw Hammett's scripts, he must have had fits of apoplexy."
Rumpus: Do you feel like your love of film inspires your music at all?
Elverum: Probably, yeah, I mean, I think they're very related, even though I don't have a filmmaking career at all. I have–It's just a non-existent thing, but I think it actually is–I do think about music in a very visual way a lot of times. Just in my own head, when I'm trying to describe a music idea to other people, there's usually some kind of image component to it that, it's just there, in my head. It makes sense that I should maybe at some point try and make movies of them.
