"The challenge in the scripting and also in the shooting was, How does she bring him out of his trance? How does she really get back to him? We set it up in that scene in his fear landscape where he’s going to kill the innocent—that’s one of his fears, one of the things he doesn’t want to do—and the only way he can do it is by looking away, he can’t watch himself. And Tris is the only one that knows that, she’s been inside his head, she knows that’s his one weakness in terms of this. So to force him to confront what he’s really doing is the thing that pulls him out of his trance.” ~ Neil Burger
"If I lived forever, who knows what I would do?" he continues. "I would certainly get better at the piano. I would try to learn how to paint. I think I would try to read all the books I haven’t read. When I was a child, the house was full of books — the walls were lined with bookshelves — and I remember looking up at them once and thinking, ‘I wonder if I’ll ever be able to read all those books?’ and my mother said, ‘It’s all right; you’ve got loads of time.’ But actually we don’t have that much time — I know I won’t. There will be things I’ll miss out on."
