MY TOP FIVE FILMS OF THE YEAR... SO FAR.
In no particular order...
The Class... ticked all the boxes... well acted/ scripted... unbelievably realistic take on the student/ teacher relationship... the scene with the empty classroom *swoon*
... isn't she in Skins?
"It'll be easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy."
- "No, it's going to be difficult-difficult-lemon-difficult."
"Fuckety-bye-bye then! "
"This is the minister of international development here, he should be talking about... food parcels... not... fucking, arse-spraying mayhem!"
"You know, if I could, I'd punch you into paralysis!"
the bit where Larry David commits suicide... LOL LOL... typical Larry...
ON THE AMERICAN FILM INDUSTRY...
If my films don't make a profit, I know I'm doing something right (1998)
If my films make one more person miserable, I'll feel I have done my job (1980)
ON THE STATUE OF HIM IN OVIEDO, SPAIN...
One of the great mysteries of western civilisation... Guys come with blow torches at night and take the glasses off (2008)
Political questions, if you go back thousands of years, are ephemeral, not important. History is the same thing over and over again (2005)
ASKED WHETHER HE'D WANTED MIA FARROW TO FIND ABOUT HIS AFFAIR WITH HER DAUGHTER...
I never really thought about it (1992)
The inequality of my relationship is a wonderful thing. The fact that I'm with a much younger woman, and much less accomplished woman, works very well (1997)
AFTER 13 YEARS OF PSYCHOANALYSIS...
When I have sexual relations with someone I can now think of that person rather than somebody else. Which is an enormous step forward for me (1971)
AFTER 28 YEARS OF PSYCHOANALYSIS...
Not a day goes past when I do not seriously consider the possibility of suicide (1986)
AFTER 36 YEARS OF PSYCHOANALYSIS, ASKED IF HE'D NEEDED IT TO BEGIN WITH...
Probably not (1998)
You have such beautiful skies when they're overcast (2004)
ON HIS FIRST WIFE, HARLENE...
She was coming home late at night and she was violated - that's how they put it in the New York paper. And they asked if I would comment on it. And I said: "Knowing my ex-wife it probably wasn't a moving violation." I just said it in a moment of gay abandon (1971)
ON HIS DIVORCE FROM SECOND WIFE, LOUISE...
It was a protest against the Vietnam war (1970)
It's very long, especially near the end (1982)
WRITING ABOUT HIMSELF IN A BOOK JACKET...
His one regret in life is that he is not someone else (1971)
The most wonderful people in the world... a much-maligned majority group (1972)
I still have high hopes...
