To be fair, I don't think it's a plague to say I have the misfortune of making movies for a living.
We must develop huge demonstrations, because the world is used to big dramatic affairs. They think in terms of hundreds of thousands and millions and billions... Billions of dollars are appropriated at the twinkling of an eye. Nothing little counts.
I acquired a hunger for fairy tales in the dark days of blackout and blitz in the Second World War.
You can understand a lot about yourself by working out which fairytale you use to present your world to yourself in.
I am not sure how much good is done by moralising about fairy tales. This can be unsubtle - telling children that virtue will be rewarded, when in fact it is mostly simply the fact of being the central character that ensures a favourable outcome. Fairy tales are not, on the whole, parables.
Sometimes you become the person people try to pin you into a corner to be, which is not really fair.
We don't swim for the attention. We don't swim to be rock stars. There is something beautiful about being in an anonymous sport and being fairly anonymous. It enables you do something you love without any of the other effects.
I feel as if I've been fairly successful with maintaining a cohesive tone between the work I make as a photographer and as a director.
I feel like I've set the bar fairly high, and I want to keep living up to that bar.
Quite frankly, I think if a man or a woman likes their American job, wherever they were born, they should be able to keep that job. We need a clear path to citizenship for workers who are already here and a fair and efficient on-ramp for those who want to come here.
