ON GETTING HIS FILMS MADE AND THE APPETITE AFTER FLOPS: Well, I suppose it’s different because I’m not as ambitious now.
In the sense of wanting to make my name. For better or worse, a name was made. But what makes me crazy is that it’s still hard to raise the money.
ON SNYDER’S WATCHMEN (AFTER ALL, HE WAS MEANT TO DO IT): Visually, it was really fantastic. He got it. And Rorschach was absolutely spot on.
But it was too reverential to the book. He was trying so hard, I just thought, “Somebody needs to kick this thing in the ass.”
