Personal Quote:

I don't care about stories. I never did. Every story is the same. We have no new stories. We're just repeating the same ones. I really don't think, when you do a movie that you have to think about the story. The film isn't the story. It's mostly picture, sound, a lot of emotions. The stories are just covering something.

Gus Van Sant cites him as a huge influence on his later work, beginning with Gerry (2002), when Gus Van Sant began using very long uninterrupted takes. See more »
