My favorite favorites are people like Bunuel, Fellini and Charlie Chaplin.
That's kind of the weird thing that M. Night Shyamalan has sort of unleashed upon the world is this need for every movie to have these ridiculous endings.
I direct a lot of TV commercials and music videos.
The film, even when we were making it in that budget range, which was really a coup - we got it made because we pitched it to the studio head, Joe Roth.
I'm not trying to be some kind of underground renegade.
I really love sort of classical cinema where people were telling stories with very little dialogue, and people were using the camera in a really interesting way.
