Edward Burns Quotes
"I suffer from Irish-Catholic guilt. Guilt is a good reality check. It keeps that 'do what makes you happy' thing in check." (On his fourth writing/directing effort, the 'Sidewalks of New York'): "I hope people watch this movie and still see New York as the greatest city in the world. I certainly do." [On why he makes films about Irish-Americans] "I feel Irish-Americans are the forgotten minority group. Nobody else is making films about them. You have Woody Allen and Paul Mazursky making films about Jewish-Americans, you have Martin Scorsese and Francis Coppola making films about Italian-Americans and you have Spike and John Singleton making films about African-Americans. Who is making films about Irish-Americans?"
