"The film is made in the editing room. The shooting of the film is like shopping, almost. It's like going to get all the ingredients together, and you've got to make sure before you leave the store that you got all the ingredients. And then you take those ingredients and you can make a good cake - or not."
- Philip Seymour Hoffman
