No more boats.


What was the attraction: “It was the challenge of being solitary without having the crutch of words. That was a challenge that was very attractive as an actor. I’d also just finished directing and acting in a film and I really wanted to have an experience where I could give myself over completely to another director. The reason this worked is because I felt that J.C. had a vision that was very clear and very strong and very different.”

Did he learn anything during the shoot: “I learned the value of being truthful in a performance, particularly when there’s nothing to lean on. There are no other characters so you’d better be true to yourself.”

Did he ever regret saying yes: “I didn’t always enjoy being there but I was stuck. Where was I going to go? It was hard. I decided that I wanted to try to do what I could physically myself. J.C was relentless in his vision, which I appreciate, but he was also very respectful throughout, of me and my well being. I think because of that I was encouraged to want to give him more, more, more. I thought if I could do some of these action things myself, it would be better for him and also pretty good for my ego. That was a terrible mistake!”

What is his connection to nature: “I feel we are in a dire situation. I feel that the planet is speaking in a very loud voice. In the United States, it’s always been what we call Manifest Destiny, which is you just keep pushing and building and developing and never mind what you destroy in your wake, whether it’s a culture or whether it’s nature. Nature has been so savaged that I think there’s not a lot left and that’s something that I feel very personal about. I don’t what can be done to stop it because you’re fighting big corporate forces and that’s hard to battle.”
