|I had become a film director because I thought I could express something in an artful way.|
|I had decided after 'Hollow Man' to stay away from science fiction. I felt I had done so much science fiction. Four of the six movies I made in Hollywood are science-fiction oriented, and even 'Basic Instinct' is kind of science fiction.||Science, Mathematics, Engineering & Technology ;Arts, Culture, Entertainment & Lifestyle|
