All my work shares a kind of balance between black comedy and sad and despairing melancholy.
There have to be moments when you glimpse something decent, something life-affirming even in the most twisted character. That's where the real art lies. See, I always suspect characters who are painted as lovely, decent human beings. I would always question where the darkness lies.
'Pulp Fiction' is an amazing film, and I haven't made one nearly as good.
I seldom feel comfortable in a theatre. I always feel like I own a cinema. I feel equally happy in an empty one as a full one. Probably happier in an empty one!
When I'm happiest writing is just not knowing where it goes and just let the characters bring you there.
