“The big question is whether at 80 years old I have the patience and the resiliency to keep trying to do it — which I may or may not have, I don’t even know. But if I should be fortunate enough to make another film, it would be exactly what I have settled upon as what is right for me. I feel that these days, I understand a little more what the cinema is. For example, when you look at Charlie Chaplin on the screen, you are not just seeing some flickering images, the emotion and the humor is really all in the audience. A film is really an illusion, and that’s why it’s so susceptible to little changes because what is exactly the right illusion that enables the audience to bring all that they have to offer out.”

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct.
