I’m fortunate to be a coward, to have a low threshold of fear, because a hero couldn’t make a good suspense film.
I am scared easily, here is a list of my adrenaline – production:
1: small children,
3: high places,
4: that my next movie will not be as good as the last one.
I am a typed director. If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.
Fear isn’t so difficult to understand. After all, weren’t we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf. What frightens us today is exactly the same sort of thing that frightened us yesterday. It’s just a different wolf.
Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms.
