Everything makes me nervous - except making films.
Every single art form is involved in film, in a way.
Everybody's a filmmaker today.
You read a script and its based on 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction', and it goes right in the bin.
A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
I'm sure that my mom would have been happy with any path I chose.
I've been through it all, baby, I'm mother courage.
If my mom reads that I'm grammatically incorrect I'll have hell to pay.
Mother's love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved.
Motherhood has a very humanizing effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials.
