I'd like to do a number of films. Westerns. Genre pieces. Maybe another film about Italian Americans where they're not gangsters, just to prove that not all Italians are gangsters.
Many really good films allow us to empathize with other lives.
Humor is very interesting to me. My films are not comedies, but there's comedy in them from time to time, absurdities, just like in real life.
If you really love films, and you really want to get the full impact, there's a huge difference between watching something on a small screen with a mediocre sound system and watching it on a giant screen in a giant theater with a huge beautiful sound system. I mean, the difference is electric.
Most of Hollywood is about making money - and I love money, but I don't make the films thinking about money.
A lot of people want to make films and do photography and things, but I'm quite happy doing what I'm doing.
In Hollywood, more often than not, they're making more kind of traditional films, stories that are understood by people. And the entire story is understood. And they become worried if even for one small moment something happens that is not understood by everyone.
Films have never shown the kind of relationship that can exist between two women.
Normally I sit there in the films really hating watching myself. Loving watching the films, hating watching myself.
In India, the films are not looked upon just as entertainment. They're a way of life.

Some of my films are known for the depiction of violence. I don't have anything to prove with that any more.
There are some long silences in Scandinavian and some Japanese films, when the audience knows action is taking place, but the audience hears no action.
John Henrik Clarke
Sci-fi films are the epic films of the day because we can no longer put 10,000 extras in the scene - but we can draw thousands of aliens with computers.
I would love to work in a Bollywood film as there is so much drama and colour in the films there.
It's not about an opening weekend. It's about a career, building a set of films you're proud of. Period.
Editing is now the easiest thing on earth to do, and all the things that evolved out of word processing - 'Oh, let's put that sentence there, let's get rid of this' - have become commonplace in films and music too.
There are only 24 hours in a day, and my top priority is working on my films, but I love short film experiments.
If only every man who sees my films did not get the impression he can make love to me, I would be a lot happier.
More and more people are seeing the films on computers - lousy sound, lousy picture - and they think they've seen the film, but they really haven't.
My favorite books, art pieces, films, and music, always have something jarring about them.
Horror fans are a particular breed. They analyze films with such detail and expertise that I am reminded of the Canadian literary critic Northrup Frye, who approached literature with similar archetypal analysis.
Truthfully, I'm proud of each of my films in a certain way.
I grew up within Italian-American neighborhoods, everybody was coming into the house all the time, kids running around, that sort of stuff, so when I finally got into my own area, so to speak, to make films, I still carried on.
Moving from chair to chair, from coffee machine to coffee machine is the limit of my action in most films. But I enjoy being cast in them because I love watching them.
