Personal Quote:

When a movie does very well, like some of mine, they ask you to re-do it, to make No. 2. This is dangerous, and I'm trying not to do it. You can become a copier of yourself. There are other filmmakers who can copy you better than you can yourself. See more »

Trivia:

When the Italian Bertolucci was Oscar-nominated as Best Director for The Last Emperor (1987) (and won), his Best Director fellow nominees were all non-Americans: Adrian Lyne and John Boorman (UK), Lasse Hallström (Sweden) and Norman Jewison (Canada) making that particular instance unique in Oscar history.
