"I always wanted to a be a director, from when I was 4 years old... I loved movies and that's what I wanted to be, and so I gravitated towards the movies where you could feel a director in it. So many of those older movies had this joy of cinema. Max Ophuls, Powell/Pressburger, Hitchcock, Busby Berkeley... The movies where you could feel the love of making movies." - from, March 20, 2015


"Like when I watch the movie now, I don’t even see jokes or a story. I don’t even really see a movie. I just see this series of choices. I see the algorithm that’s driving the comedy on screen. I just see the math. Watching me watch the movie is like a scene from 'A Beautiful Mind.'" - from, November 4, 2011
