I don't think I'd seen anything like 'The Killing.'
I'm much more likely to get lynched over 'The Killing' than 'Macbeth.'
If you think about what 'The Killing' is, it is the theatrical production, not the script.
TV has a three storyline structure, but 'The Killing' takes on that structure with such ambition.
Unhappiness is not knowing what we want and killing ourselves to get it.
I don't think a living being should suffer for the sake of fashion, period. End of story. You don't have to kill an animal just because you want to be hot and fly. And I really stand by that.
Lack of time is a real health killer.
I love the ocean, wide-open space and trees, but I'm not a gardener or anything like that. I think I may be, eventually. I was raised in the city, so I don't have that skill set, but my heart is more with the dirt than the concrete. It's an unrequited love with nature - a one-way love affair.
I think patience is a skill and I wish I had it.
I tend to take things personally. But I can only take so much, and then I jump back. I have strong survival skills.
Of course, it gave the studio an enormous power, because I don't know any other place who had that skill with images to communicate with. And the need of these kinds of images are even greater now than they ever were because we are losing our life symbols.
I think that an artist should be a skilled craftsman.
The first myth of management is that it exists. The second myth of management is that success equals skill.
The evil of storytelling is you're trying to make the audience complicit in murder - 'Kill the guy! Jump him!' And then once you've done it, it's like, 'I've killed this guy, now what?'
I didn't work on the killing floor. I worked in the section where you break the meat down and package it.
