My cousin Malcolm Lee is also a filmmaker.
I don't dictate, you don't dictate to Stevie Wonder, not successfully.
A lot of times, we censor ourselves before the censor even gets there.
Everything I do is always scrutinised. But that's all I'll say about that.
I think it is very important that films make people look at what they've forgotten.
A lot of times you get credit for stuff in your movies you didn't intend to be there.
I think people who have faults are a lot more interesting than people who are perfect.
I live in New York City, the stories of my films take place in New York; I'm a New York filmmaker.
All directors are storytellers, so the motivation was to tell the story I wanted to tell. That's what I love.
