1I don't really have anything "to say", I'd just like to eke out the comic side of the human predicament.
2We don't seem to realize that our lives are already gripped in the steely, dehumanizing equivalent of a totalitarian state. At the moment, we see it as benign, but it won't always be like that.
3America puzzled me from the moment I went there in the mid-1960s. Its motivation was totally different from that in the UK of those days (but sadly no longer). But what was it? I began to realize it was a culture based heavily on addiction. The object of every manufacturer was to make people become addicted to something, anything.
4I really want to take the audience by the hand and take them somewhere they haven't been before.
5[on Flash Gordon (1980)] The only improvised $27-million movie ever made.
6A film is alive. You shouldn't stifle it. You should never over art-direct, over conceive, over research, or walk in with an exact idea of how things should be done.
