If I made films for the critics, or for someone else, I'd probably be living in some small Hollywood studio apartment.
Every time I make a movie I think that it's going to be my last one, I think that no one is going to show up. I always have this sense that they're all going to fail. I am scared to death.
I think that there's a certain synchronicity, so far, with what I like and with what the audiences like. But I don't make the movies for them. I make them because I wanna go see them myself.
I was always looking to be entertained. We lead such full lives and a lot of us don't lead very pleasant lives and don't like what we do... My dad worked his whole life as a salesman and that wasn't what he really wanted to do. He looked forward to two weeks vacation every year and he used to say to me, 'Whatever you do, make sure you do something you really like so you don't just have your vacation to look forward to.' And I love movies.
