John Woo @ National Library

Lee Yuen and I were there at John Woo's talk last Friday. He is a humorous and approachable person. He told us that he is actually someone who prefer to make movies that explore and emphasize human emotions. But given his vast experience in making action films, no producers believe that he is serious with non-action films. He even told us that he asked for a no-pay directing role before, but his manager and lawyer advised him otherwise. Even famed directors have their hard-time and circumstances to deal with.

If I ever own an office, I would love the view to be something like this...
