Personal Quote:

I worked with scriptwriter Abi Morgan on Shame (2011) and she's brilliant, but she always knows where her stories and sentences are going. I don't want that; I like to start a sentence and let it take me, let it flow, so it can go anywhere. That's how I think things are in life, where we don't have a script. So I don't do storyboards. The characters and narrative dictate how I film a scene. See more »
