"I had a couple of movies that I was passionately involved with that I could never get made. 'Richard Pryor,' I wrote for - gosh - over a year.

"No, 'F/X 2' was a job. I enjoyed doing it but that was definitely a job.

It's informed everything I've done, even the way scenes are shot in 'Kinsey and 'Gods and Monsters.'"
