The films that I do tend to polarise people's views.
A great movie evolves when everybody has the same vision in their heads.
Personally I am very much against the death penalty for several reasons.
Period recreation is very difficult unless you make a black-and-white movie.
Most directors have little lists in their heads of people they really want to work with.
Rain is also very difficult to film, particularly in Ireland because it's quite fine, so fine that the Irish don't even acknowledge that it exists.
