Mulder’s not doing what he used to do, are there any other differences in him? He doesn’t look much older!
“He’s got that silly beard! He’s really chosen to have a relationship – Scully hasn’t given up her work, she’s a doctor. If Mulder’s not doing his work, what’s he going to do – bartend? We don’t want to see Mulder doing that. …
“It’s actually a deceptively complicated movie about human relationships in a genre that rarely deals with those things. I’m sure a film like the new Batman doesn’t address the eternal conundrum of love and work balance between a man and a woman. I’m impressed by the emotionality of it.”
