(1982 comment on Steven Spielberg) The movies have changed: there`s now this wonderful storyteller Spielberg making benign movies that are enormously successful, while I`m known mainly for making movies about people shooting and cutting each other up.

There hasn`t been much of a market for what I can do. I`m not into outer space epics or youth pictures.
Lee Strasberg ruined an entire generation of actors with that sense memory crap.
