We don’t make movies to make money, we make money to make more movies.
There are no rules in filmmaking. Only sins. And the cardinal sin is dullness.
If there’s specific resistance to women making movies, I just choose to ignore that as an obstacle for two reasons: I can’t change my gender, and I refuse to stop making movies.
A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
A story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end… but not necessarily in that order.
