I want to make movies that people talk about when they leave the theater, that aren't clear-cut, but effective and fulfilling in some sense.
The point is to expand the scope of what a movie can possibly mean or be, to get people involved because they're artistic or understand the point of the material, not just because they fit a certain bill aesthetically.
I won't make a movie for money ever again.
You know, social issue movies don't make a lot of money.
There was a time - before I made movies - when I was more forgiving, but now that I've learned as much as I have, I want to do movies that I want to see, that have their own unique flavor.
A lot of producers cookie cut movies one after another, but I'll be a little more careful, and have the opportunity to be, because I have the acting career to subsidize the producing.
Tarantino's movies, I really enjoy, certainly, and when I was 19 and 20, I was really into them.
I am miserable when I'm in a movie I'm not proud of and a movie that I don't want to do.
I learn so much more in an ensemble movie.
