„It's the first movie I feel really proud of. But I know it's not a movie for everyone.“

—  Ang Lee Taiwanese-born American film director, screenwriter and film producer 1954

On The Ice Storm (1997) Salon (17 October 1997).
Context: It's the first movie I feel really proud of. But I know it's not a movie for everyone. Some people will embrace it, but some people will hate it, and I'm not really sure how to deal with that. In the past I've made movies that were pretty universally liked. You can't really hate them. You can discard them, but you can't really hate them.
