He wrote, "Proud to be here but this wouldn't be my list. So many films which are my favorites can't be below my film.. and 'the Dark Knight' deserves to be way up. The number 1 film on the list I totally agree with. That's my absolute favorite of the 21st century."
"P.S. this is also is that film of mine that totally destroyed my filmmaking life by the expectations it sets from me as a filmmaker and has been continuously so, and I have forever been trying to break away from it. Hopefully, someday that will happen," he added.
