Sometimes I feel illusions are more of life’s essence. I can trust them more than real life that is full of deceit and covering-up.

—Ang Lee
Sam Raimi

I look at myself as an entertainer, more than anything else. I wanted to make the movie a little more different than the previous films. … That was less about me growing as a craftsman. That was more about me trying to provide an element to the audience that I thought they might need something different, that came from a different place.

—Sam Raimi
