Did You Know?
[on directing Olympia Dukakis in 'Cloudburst'] She did express hesitancy to say all of the coarse language that I wrote. But you know, she's a professional, and she said the script is her bible and the director is her god, so she would do it. But, actually, I only wrote about half of the coarse language in the script. Once given permission to curse on film, I could not stop her.
Was given the Bertha Meka's Award at the 2006 New York AIDS Film Festival for "3 Needles".
