Elephant in particular was a reaction to the press about Columbine. I thought there would be a dramatic way to investigate the motives of the two kids who killed their fellow students. It’s still perceived as improper—a drama about an event like that is seen as sensationalistic or making money off a tragedy, but Time magazine writing about it is not perceived that way. I find it interesting, the different rules that apply to journalism and drama, even though journalism has become more and more about entertainment, and entertainment has become more and more about journalism.”
