WILDsound Writing and Film Festival Review

Born: November 5, 1943 in Fort Sheridan, Illinois, USA

Personality is everything that’s false in a human, everything that’s been added on to him and contrived.

“The people the critics write for aren’t important to me. As far as I’m concerned, Broadway just doesn’t exist.” Quoted in the August, 1970 issue of Playboy (page 19).

[on working in films] “It’s all about narcissism. Terrence Malick called it ‘sanctioned vanity’. Everything is attended to. Would you like some Perrier? Anything we can do? May we throw ourselves on the ground in front of you? This unbelievable barrage of indulgence”.
