I always get criticized for style over content, unlike Ridley's films that go into the classic box right away. Mine sort of hover. Maybe with time, people will start saying they should be classics, but I think I'm always perceived as reaching too hard for the difference, and the difference doesn't categorize you as the 'classic category'
The scariest thing in my life is the first morning of production on all my movies. It's the fear of failing, the loss of face, and a sense of guilt that everybody puts their faith in you and not coming through?
