“Living is strife and torment, disappointment and love and sacrifice, golden sunsets and black storms. I said that some time ago, and today I do not think I would add one word.”
“I wouldn’t wish the eighties on anyone, it was the time when all that was rotten bubbled to the surface. If you were not at the receiving end of this mayhem you could be unaware of it.”
“You make the movie through the cinematography - it sounds quite a simple idea, but it was like a huge revelation to me.”
“There's something to be said for failing. It's not the failure you feel, it's the failure that people project when something disappoints. You're back to ground zero, where there's no expectations, and that's where I like to be.”
“I’m not a director with a personal style, I am simply cinema. I have grown up with and through the cinema...”
“My distinguishing talent is the ability to put people under the microscope, perhaps to go one or two layers farther down than some other directors.”
“I don't believe in elitism. I don't think the audience is this dumb person lower than me. I am the audience.”
“For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake.”
“If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed.”
“I know that feeling of looking back and thinking, that part I'd like to fix. So I obsessively try not to compromise.”
