In a movie, you're raw material, just a hue of some color and the director makes the painting.
My goal is just to make movies, whether they're big or small, that I'd like to see 10 years from now.
In my opinion, the vast majority of scripts written - as well as most movies that are released - are not very original, well-written, or interesting. It has always been that way, and I think it always will be.
Anyone can identify with those moments in life where circumstances or people inform us that we've strayed from the path of our better nature and intentions. We know what that's like, and we resist it - so as not to feel like we're bad people.
