It wasn't until I went to college and I got my first motorcycle that I understood the thrill of speed.
The man who raised me is black. Culturally, he made me who I am. He was a theatre director, so he also guided me artistically.
I was walking around with the babies so much that when I got to the Sidney Lumet picture, I would be on set in between takes and I'd be rocking back and forth. Just standing like this rocking back and forth, and Sidney would say, Why are you walking like that in between takes?
It would be flattering to call it a modern Dirty Harry, but I think this film deals more with the loss of his wife than the traditional revenge vigilante films.
