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.
As a teenager he was involved in petty theft, incidences of violence, defiance of authority and disciplinary incarceration.
