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.
Many really good films allow us to empathize with other lives.
None of the films I've done was designed for a mass audience, except for 'Indiana Jones.' Nobody in their right mind thought 'American Graffiti' or 'Star Wars' would work.

Films have never shown the kind of relationship that can exist between two women.
A lot of people want to make films and do photography and things, but I'm quite happy doing what I'm doing.

Normally I sit there in the films really hating watching myself. Loving watching the films, hating watching myself.
It's not about an opening weekend. It's about a career, building a set of films you're proud of. Period.
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.
