 I really understand I'll never be up here again. I really want to thank all my colleagues, all my friends. I look out here and, you know, I see my life before my eyes. My old friends, my new friends. And really, this is such a great honor, but the thing that counts the most with me is the friendships and the love and the sheer joy we have shared making movies together, my friends. Thank you, all of you, departed and here, for this inexplicably wonderful career.

 Since finishing my last film I feel the need to stop for a moment and breathe, because I've worked so very hard in the last two and a half years. I'd usually make one film a year, maybe two, then two years would go by with no films and now I've just made seven back to back. Sometimes if you give that much you have to settle it down and let the field go fallow for one year, like the farmers do.
