I'm certainly getting a lot more mail... that's basically it.
Thank God I don't live in Los Angeles. I think if you're there the whole time it just gets out of proportion and you lose touch completely with reality.
You freeze with the number of opportunities given to you and just decide to do nothing at all.
I don't think good and evil are polarized.
Truly great actors carry their characters in silence with them. They communicate without words the relationships that predate the movie.

It took me a long time to film the plastic bag, and then I had to get the cut of the scene right. But if you find it as beautiful as the character does, then suddenly it becomes a different movie, and so did he as a character.
The perceived wisdom is that people do not go in large numbers to black-and-white movies anymore - which is a great shame, but I'd love to make a black-and-white movie one day.

I think with Blair Witch and The Sixth Sense, people are much more open to something that is different.
One movie is only one movie. I want to have a lifetime of making films.
The characters are trapped within the lifestyle. It's about what goes on before the movie starts.
You think about taking audiences on a journey.
You've got to believe as a filmmaker that if a movie's good enough, it's going to survive; and if it's not, well, it won't.
