[In response to Ingmar Bergman’s contention that Last Tango in Paris (1972) (US title: “Last Tango in Paris”) was really about homosexuals, and only in those terms did the film make sense and become interesting] I accept all interpretations of my films. The only reality is before the camera. Each film I make is kind of a return to poetry for me, or at least an attempt to create a poem.

You know for American filmmakers, the Oscars is like a mystic thing. For me it was being in a mirror of my dreams when I was dreaming of Hollywood when I was an adolescent.

[on the untimely death of Pier Paolo Pasolini] A remarkable director – a great loss to Italian culture. It was as if he was discovering cinema from scratch.
