“I don’t know if I actually wrote down notes, but I was certainly paying a lot of attention,” Joe told The Bulletin. “I got to work for three excellent directors: Rian Johnson on Looper, Christopher Nolan on The Dark Knight Rises, and Steven Spielberg on Lincoln. They’re certainly all different filmmakers, but one thing I noticed that they had in common was they all have a really good balance between having a thorough plan but also being open to new ideas and spontaneity.”
