When you're making a film, you have to make most of your decisions on the run, and there is a tendency to always shoot from the hip.
You're an idealist, and I pity you as I would the village idiot.
Here's to five miserable months on the wagon and the irreparable harm that it's caused me.
The screen is a magic medium. It has such power that it can retain interest as it conveys emotions and moods that no other art form can hope to tackle.
A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
Any time you take a chance you better be sure the rewards are worth the risk because they can put you away just as fast for a ten dollar heist as they can for a million dollar job.
