This is the first time in 10 years I don`t know what I`m doing next, and I`m rather enjoying it. Soon I`ll be climbing the walls no doubt, but right now, it`s not clear, I`m just enjoying the freedom.
Regarding his commitment to directing Jarhead (2005) without a personal soldiering background: "This is new territory to me, but I hadn`t spent two days in American suburbia when I directed American Beauty (1999). I only knew the script had an unusual and original voice and it was a challenge I wanted to take on. Jarhead (2005) is equal parts black humor, honesty, rage, lyricism, profanity and the mixture of machismo jarhead culture. With the exception of Three Kings (1999) this is a war that has been overlooked but which has a burning relevance to what is happening right now in the Middle East."
