David Milch: For me, I have a pedestrian sensibility. I see things in small increments. I can render a moment without necessarily understanding its meaning. For that type of storyteller, the accumulation of moments is what ultimately shows the pattern of experience.
David: I wouldn't let my kids watch my show until they reach a certain age.
