“I always loved movies but never thought I’d direct one. My father used to take my brother and me to the movies every Sunday, and this was back when there were a lot of revival houses in New York. So I got to see everything, from To Have and Have Not to Casablanca to Serpico to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest to The Godfather. I was just watching [Sidney Lumet’s] Dog Day Afternoon, which I’ve probably seen more than 50 times, and every time, I see something in the directing that blows me away.”
