"I’m someone who has a singular goal in making films; I want to tell a story. There are certain stories that I want to tell. Hollywood’s never really been the ultimate goal for me. This seems to be the end result of a process. I just make movies and tell stories that I want to tell.""Although I have always dealt with different genres, ranging from black comedy to horror to action noire, I reckon I maintain a consistent cinematic tone. Perhaps the most consistent element in my films is the lead characters — they are pitiful, wretched characters. Faced with huge waves of destiny, they resist, strain to fight back, and try to get out to the extent they can. However, they are always reckless, mediocre, or failing.""I do use a lot of psychology in advancing my story. Sometimes I am so absorbed in describing the psychology of my character, I almost make the ‘existential’ side of my character evaporate. Yet I think the psychology of the character is very existential. Many critics and journals try to look for a trend in my work, but not for the psychological existentialism of the character."
