Personal Quote:

[on winning the Palme d'Or for The Mission (1986) at the Cannes Film Festival] I remember Andrei Tarkovsky was in competition the same year. He was dying at the time and the press wanted him to win. Afterwards they behaved as though I had personally robbed him of the award. I had a critic literally attack me in the lobby of my hotel. See more »
