David O. Russell on His Career and 'Silver Linings Playbook'

Director David O. Russell sits down with our awards analyst Scott Feinberg to discuss growing up in New York and getting started in filmmaking. On making movies he added, "You just feel grateful to do the work and you want to make it count. You are looking at your own life and your own mortality and time is limited and you want to do stories that have heart and emotion in them and that matter to you and it is a privilege to make a movie and a privilege to make any movie."
