some extracts of interviews
“It never starts from an idea (when I thinking about a film). It starts from the feeling. Something I feel about for example people who stay in love when they old, second film something I feel about inter-racial marriage…”
“I never have ambition. Life is too short for ambition.”
“I think the fact that ours is an imperfect country makes it great for the writing (of story). For example if you were in a squeak clean city, there is nothing much to write about. But if you live in New York I guess there is plenty to write about. May be painful but its have ups and downs…. ”
"In a way, its good that we have problems. Because its only by overcoming them, we become better people...We are meant to have fault. How you jude a person is by how well they overcome them. No body is born faultless. Fault are good in a way."ReplyDelete
