It is the director’s job to make things happen, not to do the thinking. That’s why you need to trust that what you ask for will be achieved. That’s not a great trick, but it’s one I like to learn. I have a great sense of intuition about that.
What do you think the biggest problem for directors is in today’s Hollywood?
They are trying to make their movies into TV shows in a vacuum. For them, every story needs to be a TV show. In the end the movie won’t have any power in the world. It will be very, very small.
What do you think will happen to Hollywood?
The only way to fix the problem on that front for me is to say they are not making television shows anymore, because they’re not supposed to do that. Maybe I’ll start doing TV shows, if they will let me.
What about the internet?
It won’t work, they can’t control it. If they did, their business problems would be solved. But they don’t want to fix it. It’s a dangerous way to go. The old way of doing things is a problem but it’s a good way, it’s the thing that still works.
But the internet is already killing film?
It’s destroying all forms of filmmaking and it’s killing the market for movies. It’s killing the only way to reach a certain audience. So they won’t have the money to make movies.
That’s why we’re talking about it as technology. It’s destroying what we have lost.
Why do you think that?
Well, it’s an enormous problem for directors. It’s killing them to make movies on the internet where you can’t control everything – you don’t know what’s going to happen next. You can’t do anything. Everything will run its course. You have to have a good script to direct it. But because it’s digital, there’s no script and there’s no control. You never know what’s going to happen next because everything is going to keep going, forever. There is no control.
But I still see big money films.
There is a lot of money to be made in Hollywood. In this new age the cost of making a movie is way down in a way that allows you to have one. That’s a good thing.
What’s in your contract today?
