I like a good story at a good diner over good coffee and a good idea and a whole day to think about it.
On Boxing Helena (1993) - I see it as a love story, not a horror film. The image of Venus de Milo is so powerful. Obsessive love is like a series of amputations as you steal from one another. It's inviting, exciting, animalistic. I've been there
I've been drawn to it.
If there's one gift I've been given from both my parents, it's the idea that you make the work you want to make - the joy is in the making. Once it's done, you let it go, and you move on.
It's great to have fallen flat on my face and to stand up again... I have more to say in a much more mature voice.
