People can get obsessed with romance,
by Adam Arkin

they can get obsessed with political paranoia,
they can get obsessed with horror.
It's isn't the fault of the subject matter that creates the obsession,
I don't think.
- Adam Arkin

you're going through the isolation of it but you're
being empowered by reminding yourself that you're connected to everybody else.
- Adam Arkin

were an important contributor to the process.
We were made to feel valued.
- Adam Arkin

I think in the case of horror, it's a chance to confront
a lot of your worse fears and those fears usually have to do,
ironically, with powerlessness and isolation.
- Adam Arkin

To confront those fears, in a controlled environment,
where there's 300 people around you going through the same thing,
it's this weird sort of yin and yang.
- Adam Arkin

It's the same thing that drives people to want to experience
sexual pleasure or have one too many drinks.
We all want to experience the other,
and to get out of our daily existence.
- Adam Arkin

It's amazing that this is still news to people,
but that affects the final outcome of the film.

they give 110 percent.

I think that was the case here.
We just wanted it to be good for everybody.
- Adam Arkin

I want to continue doing as big a variety of things as I can do,
and if that means I have the honor of getting to do more feature work,
I would love that.
I know that if I make any other long-term TV commitments,
it's not going to be on a drama.
- Adam Arkin

each other with rage and resentment,
which was also not the case.

I'm always honored, but I think for every 100 of those that come along,
one of them is actually going to happen.
And, the fact that this was an offer on a major film that had a start date,
was pretty impressive.
- Adam Arkin

It's a lot of work and I also feel like I've done it.
I miss comedy.
And I also think that, from purely a logistical standpoint,
that the day-to-day schedule on a comedy allows you to have a life,
much more of a life, than on a drama.
- Adam Arkin

I really would have been stupid not to have done it.
It was also a film that was actually happening,
I mean, Miramax was doing it, and it had a kind of legitimacy to it.
And once I read the script, I was there.
- Adam Arkin

The idea of it becomes a little freaky if you're dealing
with someone who has trouble differentiating between fantasy and reality,
but that's a concern no matter what kind of movie you're dealing with.
- Adam Arkin

The place was crawling with youngsters.
It was good, because the kids were good.

because you have lived,
this is to have succeeded.

you are beautiful already.
This is not because they're
blind to your shortcomings
but because they so clearly see your soul.

but I'm not the only one.
I hope someday you'll join us,
and the world will be as one.

and they are willing to sacrifice for it,
there is no stopping point short of victory.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

I believe that everything happens for a reason.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson
