Personal Quote:

[on Network (1976)]: I just loved it. I remember seeing it as a kid and being absolutely fascinated because it's people doing terrible things and yet you understand why they're doing them. I was very inspired by that when I made Running with Scissors (2006)". It was the same idea. See more »
