In film, we sculpt time, we sculpt behaviour and we sculpt light.
Some people go to the movies to be reminded that everything's okay. I don't make those kinds of movies.

When I'm watching somebody act, it's a behavior editorial function - I look at someone act, and I might say, 'I don't believe him when he says that.' I don't know why I don't believe him, probably because the people that I've met, they don't act like that when they say stuff like that and mean it.
