More From Alexander Payne
- "I mean, look, I love movies, not just the ones I make… In fact, I don’t like the movies I make very much."
- "Each one of my movies becomes easier to get off the ground."
- "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.’"
