Clive Owen: (on working with Spike Lee) I have never encountered shooting in both directions at the same time. It's like making six movies at once. And it makes the whole process much more alive somehow. The rhythm becomes unpredictable. He shoots two actors in a scene at the same time even if one is off-camera so the material can be used later, like for the DVD. The phone calls between Denzel Washington and I, for example, were both shot live as we were literally on the phone. We had two cameras, one shooting him, one shooting me. It's faster as well. Spike is very dynamic on the set, and very sure about what he wants. We shot the whole film in 31 days I think.
