    She is CHARMING, but that bit in the trailer where she has some fake Nanny McPhee type nose is DEPRESSING. Please tell me that’s not in the movie much.

    Part of the story of the film is that she was an ugly ducking who has come home, fully bloomed. So no, not in the movie much.

    A dreadful film. I walked out after an hour and a half and it is a miracle I stayed that long. Maybe if it was a TV film shown on a Sunday afternoon on the BBC it would be tolerable, but not as a movie going experience.

    I was so bummed when Strawberry Fields got killed off in the last Bond film. She would have made a better lead than the bond girl they went with. At the very least they should have kept her around for another film or two.

“The word I have fallen in love with lately is ‘Hellenic.’ Greek in its mythology. So while everyone is skewing towards the YouTube generation, here we are making two-and-a-half-hour movies and trying to buck the system. It’s become clear to me that we are never going to be a perfect fit with Hollywood; we will always be the renegade Texans running around trying to stir the pot. Really it’s not provocation for the sake of being provocative, but trying to make something that people fall in love with and has staying power. I think people are going to remember Dragged Across Concrete and these other movies decades from now. I do not believe that they will remember some of the stuff that big Hollywood has put out in the last couple of years. You’ve got to look at the independent space to find the movies that have been really special recently. Even though I don’t share the same world-view as some of my colleagues, I certainly respect the hell out of their movies which are way more fascinating than the stuff coming out of the studio system.”

“My first objective relationship in life was with the camera. I didn’t understand anything but then I realized the camera is my friend. It doesn’t lie to me. It doesn’t manipulate me. It only reports what I’m doing. And therefore, for me to work with a camera and the camera to be directed by an artist, a craftsman, someone who knows what he or she wants, I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
