"I'm fascinated by the way film navigates the twin courses of art and commerce, and that's reflected in my long-standing appreciation for genre filmmaking, drive-in movies, and independent film. There is grace and beauty in the disposable and the low-brow, no less than in the approved high art of the mainstream."
