I think you look like a fool as a director when you talk too much about what the actors are doing. You want them to listen to you, but personally speaking, I don’t want them to just follow everything I say without processing it. This is a problem for Asian actors. They are so polite, and they’ve been trained to smile and nod and agree with everything someone in power tells them. I’m not looking for conflict, but I’m not happy if someone is repressing their feelings either.
