Quote of the Day
I think in art, but especially in films, people are trying to confirm their own existences.
Right now I think censorship is necessary; the things they're doing and saying in films right now just shouldn't be allowed. There's no dignity anymore and I think that's very important.

Everybody thinks making films back to back is a big deal but they did it all the time in the old days.
If I didn't have my films as an outlet for all the different sides of me, I would probably be locked up.
I'd like to believe that the people that have supported me in my work or identified with me in films, the people that feel they know me, they do and they don't have misconceptions - they understand. I believe that.
If my films don't show a profit, I know I'm doing something right.
Everything makes me nervous - except making films.
If my films make one more person miserable, I'll feel I have done my job.
When people ask me if I went to film school I tell them, 'no, I went to films.'
My friend James Cameron and I made three films together - True Lies, The Terminator and Terminator 2. Of course, that was during his early, low-budget, art-house period.
If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There's nothing behind it.
I made so many films which were more important, but the only one people ever want to talk about is that one with Bogart.
I wish I could do a lot of things different. I'm not going to tell you what they are, but if I had a list of all my films right now, I'd go, 'Okay, I'll cross that one out and cross that one out and cross that one out and cross that one out.' Really. But I've made over 40 films. How can I not have some losers in there?
In feature films the director is God; in documentary films God is the director.
Why should people go out and pay money to see bad films when they can stay at home and see bad television for nothing?
A lot of the films I've made probably could have worked just as well 50 years ago, and that's just because I have a lot of old-fashion values.
The only way to get rid of my fears is to make films about them.
In films murders are always very clean. I show how difficult it is and what a messy thing it is to kill a man.
Sci-fi films are the epic films of the day because we can no longer put 10,000 extras in the scene - but we can draw thousands of aliens with computers.
I'm also very proud to be a part of a trilogy of films that, if they do nothing else, allow people to check their problems at the door, sit down and have a good time.

I wouldn't have wanted to miss the opportunity to make those three films that didn't do well. They were really important to me, and the things I learned doing them were important to me.

A lot of people want to make films and do photography and things, but I'm quite happy doing what I'm doing.
I'd like to do a number of films. Westerns. Genre pieces. Maybe another film about Italian Americans where they're not gangsters, just to prove that not all Italians are gangsters.
It's not just about acting. I love film, I'm a director now, I love writing, I love producing, I love having a company that makes films and to be prolific and have a place to put all the ideas that are constantly bubbling up inside of me and that don't let me sleep at night.
To make films like 'X-Men' work commercially - and also have some class - is one of the hardest things there is to do. I want to be seen to be able to cross lots of genres and still be 'fair dinkum,' as we say in Australia, which means genuine and true and, well, unique.
Nothing's really changed since the Harry Potter films came along.
Life goes on pretty much the same way. I've been working on a couple of films on the side. You may see some more. You may even see another television show.
Sometimes films ignore other points of view because it's simpler to tell the story that way, but the more genuine and sympathetic you are to different points of view and situations, the more real the story is.
I think one of my favorite things to do is just lock myself up in a small room and listen to music and watch films for a day. Also I just like seeing my friends. We have pizza parties which means I get four friends round, we eat a pizza and we're really lazy and we play PlayStation.
