#Quote
1I don't like to talk about my work when it's in progress because it's such a distraction. I don't like to talk about my work when it's completed because it's such a disappointment.
2The trouble with social media is that it gives everyone a voice. And not everyone deserves a voice.
3It's a good thing the French have beautiful women because their films are terrible.
4Self-contempt is powerful motivation. I mean, look at all the films I've made.
5I don't consider myself a director any longer, I'm just a guy who plays around with a camera now and then.
6I'm an artist. That means it's impossible for me to be racist, sexist or homophobic.
7A good film can nourish the soul.
8I'm sometimes praised for my accessible writing. It's only accessible because I have a limited vocabulary.
9An artist cannot tiptoe about in fear of offending those who are most in need of a wake-up call anyway.
10Art should be imitative enough to be familiar but creative enough to be distinct.
11I think, if we are to move forward as a society and achieve real equality, heterosexual marriage should be illegal too.
12"Don't judge me!" is the last line of defence for the guilty.
13I love the raw authenticity of Mumblecore and how it continues the spirit of Dogme95.
14Political correctness has no place in comedy. Or anywhere. But that doesn't mean you can't have a few manners.
15A director should not have to be an acting coach.
16What I love about filmmaking is it can be applied to anything.
17Whiplash (2014) is one of the best films in the last ten years. J.K. Simmons really reminds me of my mother.
18The level of incompetence in the film industry is staggering. To make a film is to deal with one hack after the next.
19My favourite Woody Allen film is Sweet and Lowdown (1999). Sean Penn plays such a self-centred, egotistical, obnoxious character. I can really relate to him.
20I believe in equality, I really do. But many don't understand the meaning of the word. It's about treating people equally, not giving concessions to those who happen to belong to a minority group.
21I think the best you can say about my work is it's not terrible.
22When I catch the student who's adding things I say in film lectures to the personal quotes section on my IMDb page, there's going to be trouble.
23The most important quality for a film editor is impatience.
24I don't have friends, just people who can tolerate me.
25It's not a case of the public needing to support Australian films, it's a case of Australian films needing to support the public. We have to make films audiences want to see, not the obscure, plotless, depressing "art" that defines Australian cinema at present. These films waste millions of taxpayer dollars every year and audiences, rightly, keep away.
26I have infinite ideas. Of course, that doesn't mean any of them are good.
27I honestly thought a "friend with benefits" was just a buddy on the dole. Now I've got to track down everyone I've spoken to in the past decade and clarify my relationship with a guy I know who's on welfare.
28I've got a lot on my mind. And my mind don't hold a lot.
29We live in an age of victims and complainers. I'm so offended by people who are so easily offended. Ironic, I know.
30Everyone should learn to direct. If I can do it, it can be done by anyone.
31Political correctness is the new terrorism.
32I have a very short attention span and the patience of a child.
33Do I think I'm the next Woody Allen? I certainly aspire to be. But I'm more neurotic and less talented.
34I'd rather write a new script from scratch than have to do a second draft.
35Talent is not as important as hard work.
