Basically, I'm afraid of everything in life, except filmmaking.
When I was younger, I was fascinated by David Bowie, for example. he had created an entire myth around himself. It was as important as his music.
Political correctness kills discussion.
If one devalues rationality, the world tends to fall apart.
It's always been a lie that it's difficult to make films.
Only a fool does not fear actors, but you can't beat them, and if you can't beat them, join them, as they say. As I've got older I've become very interested in that part of the work.
If you want to provoke, you should provoke someone who is stronger than you, otherwise you are misusing your power.
I'm happy that I'm alive. I feel like someone coming back from Vietnam, you know; I'm sure that later on I'll start killing people in a square somewhere, but right now, I just feel happy to be alive.
I know that I cannot be with a person for three hours without saying at least ten things that would kill me.
I grew up in a culturally radical home, where strong emotions were forbidden.
I'm having a vacation, and it's so beautiful, and maybe I'll never get another film idea in my life.
More than anything, there are more images in evil. Evil is based far more on the visual, whereas good has no good images at all.
Actors need bricks to play with, and in fact we rejected all the improvised fragments we had made without a plan. Improvisation without a plan is like tennis without tennis balls.
I am not very tough with raising my children, but you can argue that to be more tough will help your children.
When I was in film school, it was said that all good films were characterised by some form of humour.
