"Words are just a way we communicate. Images are a way we communicate. And I couldn't figure out why they had to be in different baskets."
"What I’m doing in the film is thinking about Oppenheimer in Purgatory. So I set it in a tropical jungle. He’s standing on water, surrounded by hundred- year-old ferns, but this flora speaks of the tropics rather than of Los Alamos. And he’s caught there and the camera just revolves around him. So even though it’s a moving image (that is, it moves in time), think of it as a photograph that has time."
