“As cruel as it was, in many ways, and as many cooks as there were in the kitchen, I am so grateful for the opportunity to make those mistakes because it rebuilt me as a tough person and it made me a clear filmmaker.” Remade. … and it’s been a real gift and I feel those gifts all the time because I’m so clear now when I think it’s not right – I’m not silent about it anymore. When I really won’t move on if I feel that feeling. It doesn’t deserve me. And you can’t get to that place of gratitude until you have that kind of experience.”
