“Some mornings you wake up and think, gee I look handsome today. Other days I think, what am I doing in the movies? I wanna go back to Ireland and drive a forklift.”
Movies touch our hearts and awaken our vision, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places, they open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our life time, we need to keep them alive.
Every scene is a challenge. There are technical challenges, but often it’s the simplest challenge where you feel a sense of achievement when you pull it off.
The language of film is further and further away from the language of theater, and is closer to music. It’s abstract but still narrative. Everything feels less rehearsed. It’s more experimental than classical.
We like to look into the dark side of ourselves and I think that causes us great fascination and fear. That’s why people like Hannibal Lecter. He was a man caught in a monstrous mind.
