"The size of a studio film lets you see technology in a way that you wouldn't on an independent film, like the gadgets and the angles and all that."
"Poetry, especially traditional Iranian poetry, is very good at looking at things from a number of different angles simultaneously."
"I jumped off a cliff backwards for 'I Am Number Four,' which was pretty cool. I'd never done that before. It took seven takes from different angles and luckily there were no injuries. I came close, though. My head nearly hit the rock at one point."

"It becomes a giant's task to compute the result when the effect of cross seas, wind at all angles and ever varying force, arched surfaces, head resistance, ratio of weight to area, and the intelligence of the guiding power crop up."
"What I'm trying to do is find either existing properties or come up with properties or angles or stories which will create music drama. It's my obsession and most of all I would like to remain working in theatre. I think it's very much alive."
"Cock your hat - angles are attitudes."
