In Sweden we call it a 'problem wrinkle' and its appearance suggests that the owner has had a lifetime of struggles. This production was not... What I value most as a director is the shared experience that we all share when we watch something together on the big screen. This film, perhaps more than all my previous work, is truly made for the cinema. It's loud, unrepentant, and bound to elicit strong reactions. I am extremely lucky to be doing what I do while working with an all-star cast and production crew who were crazy enough to go on this wild ride with me."
