Arthur Russell is very important to me on many levels, and when I read Tim Lawrence’s biography on him, ‘Hold on to Your Dreams,’ one of the things I took away was: first thought, best thought. I live by that when I make my own music.

They call David O. Russell the actor whisperer because he can get stuff out of actors that maybe some other directors can’t.

When an actor commits himself to a role as fully as Russell Crowe does in the grandiose and silly ‘Gladiator,’ you may ask yourself why and at the same time thank him for his absorption in the part.
