"In 1971, Ford Motor Company put a car on the road that it knew to have a design defect. The auto maker decided, rather than install $11 of parts per car to eliminate the flaw, it would be cheaper to settle all the lawsuits that would result when the cars exploded. I was studying law and filmmaking at Harvard when I learned about this achievement in arson and indecency. On orders from my conscience, with precedent from Chaplin, Kubrick, Allen, Almodóvar, I decided to write a comedy."
