|"Emeric [Pressburger] was definitely an inspiration. He made high quality European films which were aimed squarely at the international market and he never just did a film for the money--never compromised." --Andrew Macdonald quoted in the press material for "Trainspotting"|
|"All these people just gave us the money and then left us alone. Anything you see is our complete doing, mess or success. We had control on every level from the script to the casting, and to get that we had to make the film for a price." --Andrew Macdonald on working with Danny Boyle and John Hodge, quoted in SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, November 7, 1997|
|Just before filming on "The Beach" began in Thailand, the filmmakers were sued by environmentalists who claimed that the movie would destroy the national park. Reacting to the lawsuit, Macdonald told EMPIRE (April 1999): "The argument used against us is that if it's meant to be the most beautiful place in the world then why touch it? Well, it certainly is one of the world's most beautiful places, but it had been touched by a lot of people before we got there. One of the things we had to do was tidy it up: we took three tons of rubbish off that beach."|
|In response to charges that the producers paid kickbacks to the local government, he said: "Because the authorities have raped their land to a certain degree, and the government's been corrupt, the vast majority of people here [in Thailand] have no idea that anyone in authority would grant permission to anyone unless they'd taken bribes and lined their own pockets. That just isn't true. . . .
"It's become a bit of a nightmare of local politics, to be honest. But hopefully when everybody sees the film, they'll realise it was worth it, and see why we wanted to come here so much." --From EMPIRE, April 1999
