Success is not only one thing. It's not only having a nice house in Beverly Hills and driving a nice Mercedes.
I don't think 'Sugar Man' is a music doc any more than 'The Social Network' is about computers. It just happens to have the best soundtrack ever.
The kids growing up in the apartheid era were so restricted and angry - if they spoke out against it, they were thrown in jail.
There's nowhere like Detroit; it's a modern necropolis: all these art deco masterpieces crumbling away.

If you're an artist, you're an artist; that's the only way I can explain it.
Most music careers slowly but surely go down.
My specialty is two things: music or really strange stories.
The perfect story is one you can retell in three minutes, and every single sentence is interesting.
There are a few really fantastic stories left, and that kind of gives you some inspiration to find even new ones.
Travel is wonderful. Everyone thinks it's wonderful.
You don't need money to be free. You can just say if you don't need stuff, you're always free.
I don't like music docs, usually. There's nothing to really say. What can you say about music? Normally, you can't say too much. There are a few really good ones, but the majorities are boring, I think.
I love music. I think it's a higher art form, in a way, than movies. You know, a film you see once, maybe twice. A song will follow you forever. It's a magical thing.
