Mark Ruffalo spoke about some of the reviews he received
I did sense that some of those reviews were really mean-spirited. I couldn't understand that at first. The New York Times review was glowing, and then USA Today did a rebuttal review to the review. I've never seen that, like: "Hey, what's your problem?" I started to gain a lot of support as the festival went on, but when I won the award, a critic came up to me: "So, you have a problem being criticized?" I said, "No, I have a problem with someone being overtly mean. I would like to make another film one day, honestly, and that hurts my chances of doing that. And I also care deeply about it. It's like a child to me." He said, "Don't you think because you're Mark Ruffalo, you'll be able to make a film any time you want? Isn't that why you go to make your film?" It took me ten years to make that film. No one wanted to make that film. It was a labor of love. And then I realized, oh shit, there is a schadenfreude aspect to this. I was taking it at face value at first, but maybe it rubs some of these people the wrong way. Why should I get to film? Because I'm an actor? There was a bit of that going on. I'm fine with it. I try not to rely too much on reviews anymore. That can be a heartbreaking road. To me, I act or direct because I love telling stories and being involved in filmmaking. I love having a conversation with the audience, so what the reviewers say has become less and less important to me.[1]
