When I watch a movie, I don’t want to see the extra bits.
If you want a studio to back you, you want to be doing something that’s been done to death!

I have always enjoyed the company of women.
Particularly with middle-class people, self-absorption is a struggle.
By the time I was a young man, I was pretty independent.
I’m what is known as a 40-year overnight success.
I think people think filmmaking is fun, but I’ve never thought that. For me it’s always been a lot of work and pain and stress.
I am more connected to the world of the imagination, but you don’t have to have polio to do that.
