QUOTES BY Paul Thomas Anderson
'It felt like the first thing, but when I first started out, I got a job adapting a book by Russell Banks called 'Rule Of The Bone.' I didn't do a very good job. I didn't really know what I was doing in general, let alone how to adapt a book.'
'My dad was this sort of avant-garde guy who did all kinds of weird things. He was a true original and anybody who met him never forgot him.'
'I don't get a sense of American pride. I just get a sense that everyone is here, battling the same thing - that around the world everybody's after the same thing, just some minor piece of happiness each day.'
'I really subscribe to that old adage that you should never let the audience get ahead of you for a second. So if the film's abrasive and wrongfoots people then, y'know, that's great. But I hope it involves an audience.'
'My older sister was at the cusp of new wave, and I had older brothers from my father's first marriage who were rock 'n' roll guys, so I was exposed to a lot of popular culture.'
'I have a feeling, one of those gut feelings, that I'll make pretty good movies the rest of my life.'
'I had the standard movie geek childhood, because for as long as I can remember, all I wanted to do was make movies.'
'I don't think the competition's so rough, within the majority of movies made in Hollywood.'
