Personal Quotes (2)

"For a while, I was always called a 'woman director,' which is weird because I really feel like a director, not a woman director. I think that as more and more women direct different kinds of movies, we'll stop labeling things 'women's pictures' or hear people say, 'She makes women's movies.' I'm a woman and I don't know exactly what that term means. 'Women's pictures' are supposed to be something like a sensitive portrayal of relationships between ... women, I guess." (from a 1987 interview)
[in a 1985 interview] I like watching people, and when I first moved to Manhattan, I lived in the East Village. The people there fascinated me. They were mostly young, from conservative, middle class, suburban families, and they were living on the fringe in seedy apartment buildings and burned-out lofts. It was a mysterious, almost surreal experience. These were the Flower Children of the '80s. And I wanted to make a film about them, not saying that their lifestyle was right or wrong, just that it existed.
