We have a little bit of everything for you with our Weekly Clickables today, including a couple of interviews, some storytelling tips, a defense of an arguably indefensible mother, and a new movie trailer.

  • First, a defense of Mrs. Bates, courtesy of Birth.Movies.Death, that mounts the argument for Norman Bates’s mother’s innocence in the face of cinematic perjury.
  • If you love Spock, you have a trailer in support of For the Love of Spock, a documentary created by Adam Nimoy about his father, whose portrayal of the Star Trek character built a legion of devoted fans.
  • In this interview published by The Guardian, Anna Gunn discusses her new film Equity and the vitriol she received as a result of her role as Skyler on Breaking Bad.
  • At The Verge, Werner Herzog discusses the future of film school, his new documentary Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World, and his very own online class in filmmaking.
  • Finally, for the creative writers out there, check out 22 rules to perfect storytelling as tweeted by a Pixar storyboard artist and compiled by io9.

That’s all for this week. Check back next Monday for more of the best movie stuff from the rest of the Internet!
