Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance] I wanted to make something that felt too real. I said from the start, "I want the film to be felt physically, not just emotionally." I wanted the audience to be tired when they finished the film. I wanted their bodies to be tired. I thought people would love that. I like that kind of experience. See more »
