"A friend of mine – who is a great producer- is doing some work with a psychologist at the moment about why we don’t make movies that are designed to make us happy from the moment we start watching them till the end. We used to make movies like that a lot…there’s a great tradition in our culture of writing things that are designed to be uplifting…You don’t have to go on some journey, and you don’t have to be taught anything. I get the feeling a lot of the time that I’m being taught something, and after a while I go, “Yes, but I knew that. I knew that. I would like you to entertain me. That is what I’m paying my money for.”"
