I am fascinated with times past.
To me, length is an artificial and arbitrary factor in a film.
A director shouldn't get in the way of the movie, the story should.
Some of us have great original ideas and some of us depend on adaptations.
I think a story should take as long to tell as it is appropriate to that particular story.
Boy, I'd hate to shoot on tape or disc or whatever the hell they're talking about. I love film.
Visual storytelling of one kind or another has been around since cavemen were drawing on the walls.
And I don't think I'm giving away any secrets here, but there are a lot of terrible scripts in this town.
I think once you've finished a movie you really have to detach from it so that you can come back and watch it as an audience member.
