Personal Quote:

In Hollywood there used to be a sort of 'miracle of harmony' - harmony between the people writing the story, director, cast, set designer, and the grace of some of the Hollywood movies became inevitable - something within that system that made it all work. But today the production system has lost that grace. See more »
