Personal Quote:

[on 'Anna Karenina'] I conceived it as a ballet with words. I really love the part of my job that is blocking - the movement of actors in space, and their physical relationships, and how you express that through the camera. There's a lot of craft involved in that, but there's also the potential for a lot of emotion. See more »
