Personal Quotes
Most love stories that are told in Hollywood are just bullshit, and everyone knows it. You go there expecting to be sold a bill of goods that you know is wrong. And sometimes you go anyway, like if a girl drags you or something.

(2012) I remember on Beethoven we weren't allowed to pet the dog because it would have distracted him. For a dog lover that was disappointing and weird.

I find that humor is often times the best way to get at substantial themes and questions - but to do so in a really entertaining and engaging way. Something everybody can connect to. Take 'Dr. Strangelove': one of my favorite movies of all time. And it's dealing with very serious issues. But it's hilarious.

My advantage is that I know the system. Big budgets don't impress me. They might've done when I was 13, but I've been working since I was 6.

Most scripts are bad. I read a lot of them. Brick (2005) was a good script just to read. It was like, "Oh my God, these words feel so good in my mouth". A lot of movies try to set up a world with cool sets, costumes, camera work. In Brick (2005), the world is born from the words.
