Tiller Russell on Silk Road

Speaking with Script Magazine, Tiller explained his belief that Ross’ operation was “visionary genius… regardless of what end it was used for.”

When the interviewer asked how certain criminal details influenced his opinion of Ross, he clarified:

“It’s not that I admire him or that I support his actions. It’s that I’m fascinated by his character. My job as a writer and as a storyteller is not to pass judgment one way or another. My job is to enter into and understand the characters from within, and it’s the inherent conflict within each of them that makes them so fascinating to me. On one hand, Ross is a dreamer and a visionary. On the other hand, he’s a gangster who’s reportedly ordering hits.”

He added: “Whether or not the hits actually happened, and whether or not he was entrapped into them, you have to argue the intention once you’re willing to cross that line. So, for me, it’s not a question of moral approbation or condemnation…”
