Don't be fooled by the grim-faced picture. It was the only unblinking one. For me, words are worth a thousand pictures. I'm looking forward to saying hi to all of you.

What do you think of BLACK SWAN?

Forgive the pun, but this movie will keep you on your toes. There were moments I thought it was too Steven King-ish, not that I don't love his work as well, but I had liked it as a regular psychological thriller. But then I accepted it all, screaming covering my eyes, but spreading my fingers to peek so I wouldn't miss a thing. What we writers can learn from this is the art of reversals, that is, letting the reader think one thing is going to happen and then giving them something completely different. It's how you keep the pages being turned.
