The great thing about an independent film is that you’re too busy working, and you’re too busy hoping to God to get it done.
I am not a political man and I have no political convictions. I am an individual and a believer in liberty. That is all the politics I have. On the other hand I am not a super-patriot.

A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.
Marketing has supplanted story as the primary force behind the worthiness of making a film, and that’s a very sad thing. It’s film only as a function of consumerism rather than as an important component of our culture, and that’s everywhere around the world.
