Personal Quotes (3)

My dad and I talked a lot about movies, mostly about movies that had been made more than movies we were making. And what I've discovered through this process is just how much I like creating personal stories and putting them in a place that doesn't have to be rigidly bound by reality.
[on who he made De Palma (2015) for] For us at first, since we didn't even know if it would be a movie. I think we just spent so much time with Brian and our friendship grew in a way where we realized this would be so valuable if he spoke to us on camera the way he speaks to us at dinner because what he's talking about, and the way he talks about it, is so compelling. I think in the beginning it really was for us. And once he turned it on in a way that was just as compelling and electric on camera as it is in person having dinner with him did we realize this is movie-grade stuff. This is beyond just us recording this thing selfishly, this is probably something that lots of people would be interested in, even if they don't necessarily know Brian's movies. [2016]
[how he came to know Brian De Palma] I went to a dinner party at a friend of my wife's house and he was there and I was finishing my first movie and I told him a little bit about it. Noah and I both have this thing, we're both massive fans so there's a bit of that starstruck thing when talking to him where you certainly don't think it's gonna go much farther than meeting him. Then he's the one who gives you the permission to be friends. I got an email from our mutual friend, who said, "Brian talked to me a little more about your thing." I showed him the movie and then we started spending a lot of time together. [2016]
