David O. Russell: If NASA Gets 'Pristine Images From Mars,' Why Can't My Monitor?

The Oscar-nominated director jokes about his frustrations over using monitors on set, saying he instead chooses to stand next to a steady camera. "Half the time monitors are never reliable," says Russell, noting that the Mars Rover sends back "pristine images from Mars." He then adds of his monitor: "I am standing right next to the antenna, and I can't see anything right now of what's being filmed right here in this room."
