[in his last-ever interview in August 2012] My greatest pleasure in life is a completely appointment-less day with nothing to do. It means I can read a book, listen to the radio and do exactly as I wish. If you are going to do a film properly you have to give yourself completely to it. You can’t slip in and slip out again. You give it the business. My diary now is free, completely free. That’s the way I like it. I only do what I want to do.
