It strikes me profoundly that the world is more often than not a bad and cruel place.
I went to college in Vermont, and then stayed in the East Coast.
Are you as much of a criminal if you don't act when there's a crime taking place in front of you as you are one of the participants? That was something that I was thinking about a lot because there are many moments in 'Less Than Zero' where horrific things happen and Clay could do something about them, but his passivity stops him.
I have no problems or issues with screenwriting in general.
I totally relate to Tom Cruise. He's not crazy, it's just the litany of the mid-life crisis.
Regardless of the business aspect of things, is there a reason that there isn't a female Hitchcock or a female Scorsese or a female Spielberg? I don't know. I think it's a medium that really is built for the male gaze and for a male sensibility.
