[1983 interview] Because directing is very political and social, it takes up more of your time than writing does. It’s more demanding because you have to make the movie when the money is there. A book can just sit there; it doesn’t depend on anyone else. That’s what’s nice about it. You don’t have to rely on anyone else – you either do it or you don’t. Fiction writing is a break from movie-making for me.
