Steve McQueen accepts Best Director at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, dedicates award to John Cassavetes
In 1989, I first saw a John Cassavetes movie and it stunned me because I didn’t know who this guy was and it changed my life. It really did. Shadows, Opening Night… all those movies about trying to find something and not knowing what you’re looking for. And, I wanna dedicate this not just to John Cassavetes but also to Solomon Northup who inspired me to look and try to find the truth in whatever we try to find it in.
