Paul Greengrass's quotes

  • [on his time with British current-affairs TV show 'World in Action'] A festival of puerile self-importance, intense paranoia, fiddled expenses and brilliant creativity.
  • [how he developed his distinctive hand-held camera style] To be perfectly honest, i couldn't afford tripods.
  • [on Captain Phillips (2013)] Tom Hanks has built his career playing ordinary men. This performance is a study of endurance and heroism, but he crafts it from pieces of doubt, uncertainty and fear. It's not built from hubris.
  • [on Alan Clarke's films]...unquestionably the finest body of work created by a British director.
