Very hard question! Kubrick leaps to mind because he pushed the boundaries of storytelling and camera. But so many others.
Which director would you say has been the biggest influence on your work?
Hi, just in case you are the person I think you are - Conversations With Other Women was pure genius, even when disregarding my Helena fan bias. Everything about it made me adore it. The characters, the split screen, the writing; everything. Personally, I'd rather watch another film from you opposed to some crappy overrated blockbuster. Just saying. :)
Thank you! I loved making that film. Great script by Gabrielle Zevin, great actors in Helena and Aaron. Always makes me happy when someone enjoys it.
