"Montana is the landscape that generations of dreamers, despots, adventurers, explorers, crackpots, and heroes fought and died for. It's one of the most beautiful places on Earth. There is no place like it."
"If it isn't God's backyard, He certainly lives nearby."
"I fell in love with Montana photographing it, in the spring, in the summer, in the fall. And when I knew it well enough, I wrote a script for it, together with Sam Shepard. That became Don't Come Knocking. The experience of shooting in Montana was fabulous. Our local crew and casting were great, and the weather was steadily gorgeous. It could become addictive."
