Being the best filmmaker in San Antonio, Texas, is not like winning the Special Olympics. It's more like finishing just out of the medals. My films have won a lot of awards, and my scripts have been optioned. But I really want to sing opera and drink champagne from a princess's slipper.
I tend toward thrillers with a darker sense of humor -- Hitchcock, Lynch, Kubrick, Almodovar, some of the Coens' stuff. Or comedy with a touch of thriller -- John Waters, Ealing Studios, Almodovar, some of the Coens' stuff.
