When there is a strong woman character in a story - that always grabs me.
Now I'm kind of established as a director, I much prefer directing to writing.
Directing, I get all kinds of inspiration. It's working with people. It's a lot more fun.
The way I go about a lovemaking scene is that we will talk about it during the rehearsing time.
I did a women's movie, and I'm not a woman. I did a gay movie, and I'm not gay. I learned as I went along.
I think the American West really attracts me because it's romantic. The desert, the empty space, the drama.
When I see something I like, that's all that counts. What they use, how they get there, I never bother them.
I'm a drifter and an outsider. There's not one single environment I can totally belong to. My cultural roots are something illusive.
