Personal Quote:

[on why he didn't record an audio commentary for 21 Grams (2003)] I don't like them. I feel that if you have to explain something, it loses strength. It's like a magician trying to explain his magic, in a way. Those kind of things make me feel like I've lost something special about the film. The film should explain itself. See more »
