More From Alexander Payne
- "Anytime you cast a movie and you need someone famous in the lead part, you’re a prisoner of whoever happens to be famous in the six-month window in which you’re trying to get a film financed."
- "I mean, look, I love movies, not just the ones I make… In fact, I don’t like the movies I make very much."
- "The novel succeeds on terms exclusive to literature. A good film succeeds on terms exclusive to the cinema. That’s why so many bad novels can become good movies, like ‘Jaws’ or ‘The Godfather.’"
More In Hope
- "I hope I die before I get old."― Roger Daltrey
- "Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets."― Arthur Miller
- "I am convinced that this approach, a mainstream Democratic approach, commands the strong support of the American people, and presents a sharp and compassionate contrast to the Republican abortion position which offers no real hope or commitment to mother or child."― Robert Casey
