The One I Love director Charlie McDowell talks to Film Journal International about his genre-bending debut feature film.

He says, "I was definitely inspired by people like Charlie Kaufman, Spike Jonze, these guys who have mixed genres, but did it in a love-story narrative. Comedy and sci-fi don’t sound like they go together, and that made it appealing to me. I don’t think that genres should be exclusive and just left on their own. I like the idea of tinkering in different worlds and putting the two together. I think, ultimately, if it works and if you do it right, then the story has more of an impact on the audience.”
