1. Silver Linings Playbook at Toronto Int’l Film Festival

    "I like a short schedule because it serves a rhythm that I put in the writing.  We would find that rhythm to the scene that would gather momentum as we would go faster - because what you don’t want is this person speaks and then this person speaks which is how you sort of tend to start the day. But if you get broken in like a baseball mitt, by the time we have warmed it up, people are just going, like it is in real life.” - David O.Russell

    "I think David puts actors in an adrenaline rush constantly, you are onset and you have no alternative but to be brilliant." - Anupam Kher
