Imagination, it turns out, is a great deal like reporting in your own head. Here is a paradox of fiction-writing.

Whether I'm acting or making it, at the end of the day it's telling the story; action, drama. You want the audience to feel it - the story, the action, the scene, or a particular shot. I just keep working on crafting my art, on how to make action movies.

I think for diners, it is about crafting an identity around food which we have not really had in a mainstream way in this country.
