Personal Quote:

[on the vanishing distinction between TV, cinema and new media] Cinema is cinema. It can be a minute or less, or it can be 90 hours or more like The Sopranos (1999). It can be shown in theaters and at the same time you can see it in your living room. It's true you could see it on your iPhone. I'm not sure you would want to, but you could. [2016] See more »

Brother-in-law of Bill Neil. See more »
