Personal Quotes (2)

[on Mishen (2011)] The film, in some way, examines questions like, "What makes you happy?" "What do you need for happiness?" "Can you buy happiness?" You know, "How could you live if you knew you were never gonna die?" So... small questions like that.
I did have one very sweet proposal of marriage. I was in the video shop near where I live and this guy standing next to me said, "Hey, I recognize you. Will you marry me?" I asked him what video he'd chosen and he said something like Speed II (Speed 2: Cruise Control (1997)), so I said, "If you don't mind, I won't marry you."
