"There are a lot of movies that have impacted me—don’t get me wrong, I love movies. But to your question, do I think our job is nonsense? Yes, I really do. I don’t think what we’re doing in general is affecting anything. I think it’d be more useful for humanity if I were doing something else. But I don’t blame myself and I’m not playing the victim. I love what I do and I’m going to keep doing it and hopefully I inspire as many people as possible." - from www.filmcomment.com, June 12, 2015
