I really enjoyed working with New Zealanders as crew members, as teammates. They're great, and it's a beautiful country. It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been, and I've traveled quite a bit.
Each time I make a movie, it's like a paid scholarship to a different university course.
Pinochet and Barack Obama both have the same primary goal, and that's to be president and stay president as long as allowed.
Like most people - unless they're very practised at it or have no warm blood at all in their veins - I feel a little apprehensive about the red carpet. It's always a bit bewildering when people are taking pictures and asking questions before the ceremony.
