Personal Quote:

I make movies for myself. I've got to like what I do and I've got to do it as well as I can. If other people like what I like, then, great. If you try and make a cult film, it won't be a cult film. If you try to make a critically acclaimed film, it won't be a critically acclaimed film. Just make the film that you like to make, and make it as well as you can. See more »
