I got a good-enough adolescence. I mean, there's a sense wherein you skip a part of childhood, too, when you start working at that age I did; I was out working and out of home at 15, paying my own way in the world.
'Animal Kingdom' was an amalgam of two people that I had met-slash-known, not particularly well. They were both very, very scary people for very different reasons.
It's good to surf whatever waves are going on right there as they're happening.
I think it's that thing of growing up all the time watching American movies and listening to American music. It hits you in a way that's a lot purer because you are not in that culture that you're watching.
I think some of my favorite Australian films were shot by people that are not Australian. And I think when Dean Semler did 'Dances with Wolves,' for instance, that's a very different-looking Western than what you've seen much of before. It's very rich, color-wise. But we've got our own very proud thing going on.
我想我最喜欢的一些澳大利亚电影是由非澳大利亚人拍摄的。我想当迪恩·塞姆勒（Dean Semler）做《与狼共舞》（Dance with Wolfs）的时候，这是一个和你以前看到的完全不同的西部风格。它很丰富，颜色也很好。但我们也有自己的骄傲。
Typically, I'll wake up at 4:30 in the morning. It's just the continual jet lag residue, just weird sleeping hours.
I like to call up ghosts of things past for myself when I'm working a lot.
