Personal Quote:

[on Shame (2011) being rated NC-17 in the U.S.] When I first heard mention of NC-17, I thought they were a rap band. I didn't give a toss about that because I like the idea of doing something no one is actually talking about. It was the same with Hunger (2008). Want, urge, need - these are the things that create drama. See more »
