My guides in this inquiry are my children who are now 16 — they’re twins. They’re like lab rats really, they’re very grateful. When I first started thinking about cinema for them, I started to really examine my own desires about cinema for myself… It was really to do with the children and seeing their eyes opening. And I started thinking about why cinema is good for the soul, and what it gives us. In a nutshell, what it is for me is this amazingly humane opportunity to put yourselves in the shoes of someone else. It’s no more complicated and no less powerful than that. You go in, it all goes dark, and you put yourself in someone else’s shoes and see through their eyes. That’s just mega, it’s so powerful. Even a painter, who can do it, only can do less. A painter at one time is showing you one frame, but a filmmaker can take you into an experience and an existential atmosphere that may be a trip for you. It’s like a magic carpet. This is how I feel about cinema.

To Catch a Thief (1955)

You don’t have to spend every day of your life proving your honesty, but I do.

Never forget.


They say we only use a fraction of our brain’s true potential. That’s when we’re awake. When we’re asleep, our mind can do almost anything.

I have problems because I’m very expressive, and usually red lipstick gets on my teeth and face.
