David Foster Wallace video interview

An uncut 84 minute interview with DFW for German television, from 2003. Topics include Infinite Jest, "The Depressed Person," tennis, American individualism, entertainment as addiction, etc., etc. Doesn't really pertain to anything in particular, other than it's fascinating for Foster Wallace heads. Discussion question: Does the fact that he committed suicide invalidate his worldview or cast it in an unhealthy light? Consider not only Sylvia Plath, Ernest Hemingway, Kurt Cobain, etc., etc., but also those who attempted suicide and failed Kurt Vonnegut, Richard Pryor, et al.
