Neil Jordan

And I think I often choose to do something because it's quite different from what I've done before.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 02:08:55]
But everyone gets burnt, don't they? Certain things are outside of your control. I suppose the only thing you can learn as a director is to not put yourself into situations where it can get outside of your control. And that's what happened.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 02:08:27]
For me, the filmmaking has to be about the dramaturgy.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 02:08:14]
I can't do a film if I don't start with the writing.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 02:08:20]
I mean I grew up in Ireland, so one would have to be consciously blinkered not to have reflected on the issue of political violence because that was the story since I was 19 years old or 20.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 02:08:42]
I took two years away from making films to write a novel.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 02:08:48]
I'm less comfortable making American movies because I don't know them so well.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 02:08:54]
I've also worked hard portraying an Ireland which is fast disappearing. Ireland was a very depressed and difficult place in the 1980s, and I've tried to include that in the script. I worked really hard to find the heart of the book.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:02]
I've had three novels published, and I was working a little bit in theater in Ireland. I wrote one film script just to see what it would turn out like.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:45]
In Dreams... well, I was slightly overcompensating with that. I was a bit like a director for hire, so maybe I was putting too much imagery that was familiar to me into it.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:53]
Initially with The Butcher Boy, there was this kid growing up in this strange, weird environment that I remember from when I was a kid. And Patrick's vision was so complete there.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:58]
It is extremely difficult to get movies that cost more than $40 million to be made these days.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:04]
It's hard to know whether certain characters come to life or not, they either come to have their own life or they don't. I've written many things in which the characters just remain inert.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:11]
It's nice to work with Hollywood because there is never any question of resources put at your disposal to make a film as long as it is the right thing to do.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:17]
It's the opposite journey from what I've usually done with films. I find it very easy to go from, say, a lit, pleasurable environment, like what you see outside there, to a very dark place. But the opposite journey, which is what this movie takes, is much more complicated.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:22]
It's the same thing in a way, although writing a book is a very solitary thing.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:28]
My conception of it was that in a normal film you have a story with different movements that program, develop, go a little bit off the trunk, come back, and end.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:39]
Never make a promise - you may have to keep it.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:52]
The Company of Wolves doesn't belong in any category, so it's difficult to prepare an audience for it. It's not a horror film, it's not a fantasy film, it's not a children's film - so what is it?More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:07]
The Company of Wolves is about how society teaches young women to look at themselves, and what to be afraid of. It's about a girl learning that the world of sensuality and the unknown is not to be feared, that it's worth getting your teeth into.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:15]
The End of the Affair is almost like a play.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:20]
The most difficult thing is the organization of people and the expression of your intentions. It's very easy to have a picture in your head and to imagine that you've told everybody about what you need.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:27]
There's no point in making a film out of a great book. The book's already great. What's the point?More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:32]
Well, I suppose I'm interested in ways of storytelling and in stories that are about storytelling.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:49]
Well, if you're talking about the current climate, there's a lack of content in American film because I think people are deeply confused about their emotions, and they don't regret certain aspects of their own foreign policy.More Neil Jordan [08/10/2011 03:08:59]
