I'd like to believe that the people that have supported me in my work or identified with me in films the people that feel they know me they do and they don't have misconceptions - they understand. I believe that.
Most films seem to be about a man and a women falling in love at some point and once you pass forty-five it's almost disgusting to fall in love.
Even if there are a lot women in films there are few who are lesbians that people know about.
And if there was one title that could be applied to all my films it would be 'Civil War' - not civil war in the way we know it but the daily war that goes on between us all.
With Vietnam the Iraq War so many American films about war are almost always from the American point of view. You almost never have a Middle Eastern character by name with a story.
Well first of all making films is a collaborative process. You need people. You need people you trust and love and who are your friends. People you can work with.
And as I've gotten deeper into the process of making films and television and such I think I have more trust in the fact that you really never know what you're going to find after the twenty-fifth take.
Everybody thinks making films back to back is a big deal but they did it all the time in the old days.
I really liked 'Starter For Ten' because I grew up watching 1980s teen films like 'St. Elmo's Fire' and 'The Breakfast Club' and I've always wanted to play the underdog lead hero in a 1980s-inspired film.
Well in our industry it's that the movies cost so much money to make they have to appeal to a broad audience. And I think that's part of what will loosen up in the future as technology makes it cheaper you'll be able to make films for a more selective audience. I think people will be able to make more personal movies.
For behaviorist films that's been much more useful - the change of technology - but for my kind of films doing them on film is much better because it's more beautiful.
You can get digital technology that almost is film quality and go make little films and do everything you can to find a little understanding of your own voice and it will grow - Don't take no for an answer - Take every opportunity you can to do something.
All this technology has not changed the way NFL Films does business and our process. Yes with one touch of a button now you reach millions of people but it is still the same approach that my father and I started out with.
I don't particularly enjoy watching films in 3D because I think that a well-shot and well-projected film has a very three-dimensional quality to it so I'm somewhat sceptical of the technology.
I love films that make me react emotionally and physically when you walk out of the cinema. Two of my favorite films however have got to be 'The Tree Of Life' and 'The Piano Teacher ' which also stars one of my favourite actresses Isabelle Huppert.
I first decided to become an actor at school. A teacher gave us a play to do and that had a major impact. At first I wanted to work in the theatre but there was something about the ambience of film especially American films that always attracted me.
Independent films have a very different cachet than success films.
When you look at golf films before us they're all - garbage or satire. A lot of sports films tend to vilify the opposition. Where the opposition becomes this big angry monster so big you can't beat him.
I love the live performances and Las Vegas. I also like making films that are being discovered by another generation. Having been a teen idol of the '60s is great because you realize you left your generation with a smile and good memories.
I've always been a fan of science fiction films and I've never been able to put my particular spin on it.
My taste in watching things runs from dramas and low-budget films to high-end fantasy/science fiction.
Science fiction films are not about science. They are about disaster which is one of the oldest subjects of art.
Film-makers are always going to be interested in making movies that plug into society around them. That's what a vibrant artistically alert community should be doing. After all it would be sad if we only made films about alien robots.
It's sad - it's sad for us old enough to remember when directors ruled and films were substantially better than they are today. But it's hard to argue with those kinds of grosses.
