Personal Quotes (4)

[on 'The Rover'] In some ways it is an angry movie. But at the same time I feel like 'Animal Kingdom' is angrier than this one. That weird tableau of characters you're left with at the end of 'Animal Kingdom' is a pretty kind of loveless tableau. Where as here, where this movie ends - for all its brutality - is an almost sentimental place of human conception.
'Animal Kingdom' changed my life. It meant for me that I didn't have to work out what movie I was going to make next. I had to work out how to work. I went from having no options to a thousand.
[on filmmaking] By the time I've finished making [a movie] I feel like I've lost perspective. This is the part of the process where I get a sense of how it sits in the world. How it's being read, and really terrifyingly, what it might mean for me and the trajectory of my career.
[on the Cannes Film Festival] It is as I had always imagined it. The madness of it. That strange mix of money and gross-ass luxury with a true and sincere reverence for cinema. I haven't experienced it anywhere else.
