Did You Know?
Like [Federico Fellini
], I think that the "noble" film is the trap of traps, the sneakiest swindle in the industry. For a real filmmaker, nothing could be more boring to make than a The Bridge on the River Kwai
(1957)--scenes set inside office alternating with discussions between old fogies and some action scenes usually filmed by another crew. Rubbish, traps for fools, Oscar machines.
Had a falling out with Jean-Luc Godard
after he came to believe that Godard put down the work of others to raise the regard of his own.
