Every time I do one I feel like I’ve never really quite learned anything. I always find that when I’m making a film, I find it a little bit like I’m doing it for the...
So on my screenplay, on the left-hand side of the page, I will put all the ideas that refer to the scene next to it so I have some sort of pictorial reference.
You would violate usage only if you should act without the advice, or even contrary to the opinions, of your constitutional advisers.
Foxes was a movie that didn’t do a lot of business but it didn’t do too badly critically and eventually they offered me other things. The interesting thing was that next I tried a film...

Well, I think just the fact that you are making your first film is a huge step.
