[on Sam Peckinpah] Sam is, I think, a great filmmaker. Of course, he’s his own worst enemy. Sam is an unusual human being, and he needs to be treated like an unusual human being. He can create an atmosphere, whether he’s drunk, sober, pissed off or in a rage, or whatever. I mean, for about three or four hours a day, he’s a fucking genius. But the rest of the time he spends wallowing in a kind of emotional reaction to either good or bad memories.
