"Cecil B De Mille once said: 'Give me a page of the Bible, and I'll give you a picture.' My thing is: 'Give me anyone's life and I'll give you a picture.' I find the scholarly element of detection and research so appealing--going in and trying to figure out my take on Orson Welles or Marcus Aurelius or Pasolini." --Logan to The Daily Telegraph, December 17, 1999.

"In 90 percent of the cases, history helps us out very nicely and is the spine from which we built the organs and the muscles. For that other 10 percent, it is pure invention." --Logan to MovieMaker, April/May 2000.

"I thought as a fluke that I'd take a playwriting class, but the minute I did that, I knew it was my destiny. I've never looked back. I spent 10 years writing plays, but I've always had this incredible passion for movies; I thought it would be fun to give that a try." --Logan to MovieMaker, April/May 2000.

"There is no such thing as empirical historical truth--there are different judgments on every single issue." --Logan to MovieMaker, April/May 2000.
