I was obsessed with romance. When I was in high school, I saw 'Doctor Zhivago' every day from the day it opened until the day it left the theater.
Movies are something people see all over the world because there is a certain need for it.

I think a sequel is a waste of money and time. I think movies should illuminate new stories.
Francis Ford Coppola
I am a cynical optimist. Big opening weekends are like cotton candy. The films you will remember over time are the films that stick in the consciousness of the audience in a good way.
I learned what I really love is making films, not the film business. I want to be on the set, meeting with writers, I want that freedom. I love it now.
I do believe that movies are subject to a million interpretations.
Sometimes in movies, I still have to be the hero, but it's not all that important to me anymore.
