Quote of the Day
New York's like a boxing match. In Hollywood, it's like a Fellini movie or something.
In a sense, 'Schmidt' is the most Omaha of my films. But have I gotten it right? I'm not sure. Did Fellini get Rome right? Did Ozu get Tokyo right?
Certainly for my father, there were great times, good times, not-so-good times. He might be shooting a Fellini film for six months, then not working for two months. I'm used to that dynamic.
When I first saw a Fellini movie, I came out of the movie theatre and decided to become a lawyer! I thought to myself, it's impossible to make something so beautiful!
I see wonderful films by Bertolucci, Visconti, and Fellini.
My star was kind of fading towards the end of the '60s and suddenly I got this call from Fellini, who just appeared to kind of love me!
With Fellini, the fear dropped out of my work because it was such a happy experience... hanging out with Fellini, having pasta on the set with Fellini, and going out with Fellini!
My favorite favorites are people like Bunuel, Fellini and Charlie Chaplin.
With 'Brick' there was the Dashiell Hammett influence, and with 'Brothers Bloom' there was a really strong Fellini influence - both those movies wore that on their sleeve.
Fellini belongs to nature.
For me, Fellini was like a watermelon. It is there. A watermelon cannot die.
I was influenced by European movies, old Fellini, old Kurosawa - any sort of foreign film.
It was I who made Fellini famous, not the other way around.
But, I'm a big Johnny Cash and a big Lou Reed fan and a Fellini fan.
Well, Fellini... there is always Fellini.
