Personal Quote:

[on his film Crash (2004) winning the Oscar for Best Picture] Was it the best film of the year? I don't think so, there were great films that year. Good Night, and Good Luck. (2005) - amazing film. Capote (2005) - terrific film. Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain (2005), great film. And Spielberg's Munich (2005). I mean please, what a year. Crash, for some reason, affected people, it touched people. ... See more »
