Eric: I controlled every aspect of the production. Sometimes violently so. I demanded perfection of myself. And so to the cast. I shot roughly six lines of dialogue a day, from hundreds of angles and many, many takes. The cast staged a revolt at one point, but I was prepared for this for I knew to carry a gun. I would not allow the film to be shut down, although I did take a two-month hiatus while I found out where my head was at.
