“It's got the same structure [as the film], in some sense, ... but the twists and turns David came up with are quite different. It's a more subtle and more layered look at human behavior, not just a pulp fiction tale.”More Viggo Mortensen quotes [07/10/2006 12:07:00]

Looking at acting, in the movies or the theater, and the way I like to look at it, it's just an extension of childhood play...

They believe in it completely.More Viggo Mortensen quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
