There are credits after the movie

The cashier asks if people mistake me for Seth Rogen.

“Sometimes,” I say. “But on my better days I get Francis Ford Coppola.”

“Who’s that?”

I give him the greatest hits: Apocalypse Now, The Conversation, The Godfather.

“Are those movies?”

“Yes.”

“And he’s an actor?”

“Writer-director.”

“Oh,” the cashier says. “That’s weird.”

“What’s weird?”

“That people would know what the writer or director looks like. I just think of those people as kind of anonymous, or something. I mean who cares about them, right?”

“People who like movies.”
