The film is not a success until it makes money. It's only good when there's a dollar figure attached to the box office.
When applied to politics and taken to its extreme, kitsch is the mask of death. Fascism was all aesthetics. There was no core principle to it. There was no truth to it.
I have a bit of a rebellious nature.
Death is a billion-dollar business. They can't even pass a law where it takes seven days to get a gun. Why don't you have to go through the same kind of screening you do to get a driver's license? It's totally insane.
Any time you stop looking at evil as a black and white thing, it's helpful. So the fact that there won't be any obligatory Islamic terrorist stereotypes in movies any more, that'd be helpful.
I think the more you expose yourself as a celebrity, the less interesting you are to watch in your work, because if you're putting yourself out there all the time, you're not holding anything back.

I was never interested in being an overly public person.
I love these movies where it's just about the film. You don't have my face on the poster. It's all about the movie. I like that.
I think when you get to the point where you don't need to be in love, then you could be in love. You have to just be OK with yourself-and that's a long process.
I like the George Romero films, which were really great, social satire movies; really twisted.
Being on a movie set is like one long financial crisis.
New York's like a boxing match. In Hollywood, it's like a Fellini movie or something.
I feel like I'm a filmmaker; I don't feel I need to yell action and cut.
Do I listen to pop music because I'm miserable or am I miserable because listen to pop music?
