"I like to stay with the same group of people if I possibly can because I can rely on them, and there are enough difficulties without dealing with temperament! It’s a much more pleasant experience and we don’t have to talk so much if we know everyone. Frankly, having become used to the great efficiencies of shooting in the U.S., I much prefer it; shooting “Closer” in London was a bit of a shock. Not that it didn’t work out well; it just requires a different way of thinking and planning. I prefer the system of working in the U.S."
