NEW YORK (AP) — The numbers are unavoidable. Paul Thomas Anderson has made seven feature films and he has made seven films set in California. "It's just there, isn't it?" sighs Anderson. "If there was ever any kind of intention to have a wide variety of work, all of it's gone out the window." Such a fate is ironic to the 44-year-old director, who grew up in the San Fernando Valley preferring Westerns that were shot in Arizona or Texas, as opposed to those (he could tell) in the soft rolling hills of California.

Cecil B. DeMille's 'Amazing Vision' for Filmmaking
