The Believer (2001)
I like working with actresses, and I like women a lot, not for obvious reasons, but just in that that there’s so much about what they bring to the scene that keeps it so interesting. Their instincts are so different, and they never explain them to you.
So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.”

Favorite people: Ryan Gosling

Drive: “I know a lot of guys who mess around with married women, but you’re the only one I know who robs a place to pay back the husband.”
"Luke is a guy who has this dark and mysterious past. He’s seen and done everything, and had everything happen to him. He’s damaged, wounded— a person who was kind of covered, not necessarily in scars, but in these tattoos that were signs of the pain he had experienced. On the outside, he had this mythical presence—the kind of guy that 1960’s girl groups like the Shangri-La’s used to sing about. He’s a bit of a contradiction – wounded and scarred on the inside, but with a wall of armor on the outside, the muscles, the tattoos, the hair, the charisma, etc. He’s like a big cat in a small cage – abused and dangerous and utterly compelling."
—Derek Cianfrance about the character Luke Glanton
I just really like hearing his viewpoint because I know that it’s never going to be tainted. He’s very much his own person … I only met him two years ago when we did Crazy, Stupid, Love, but it was like meeting a member of your team or something. I really like his brain … I immediately felt a kinship with him.
