On Ripley’s Game, i remember doing this scene with [John] Malkovich where we’ve laid traps outside the house. he said, “Let’s throw it around a bit.” he’s an incredibly generous guy. i don’t think i’m ever going to work with someone as genius as he is as a fucking actor. that moment, on that day, on that set, i thought, “i don’t think i’ll ever be happier.” a couple of years ago i was so frustrated about not, i felt, getting the opportunity to do the things i really wanted to do. i’d be offered things and think, “this is fucking shit.” so i decided i was going to develop stuff on my own again, and that became exciting.
