A lot of the films I've made probably could have worked just as well 50 years ago, and that's just because I have a lot of old-fashion values.
Making a movie and not directing the little moments is like drinking a soda and leaving the little slurp puddle for someone else.
I was making a lot of 8mm home movies, since I was twelve, making little dramas and comedies with the neighborhood kids.
This whole thing about reality television to me is really indicative of America saying we're not satisfied just watching television, we want to star in our own TV shows. We want you to discover us and put us in your own TV show, and we want television to be about us, finally.
