[interview in Le Devoir, 10/12/74] I don’t want to hear it said that I don’t like women! I tried to show in [Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974)] that I adore them. They represent the positive pole of the film, the life force and instinct.

[on Kris Kristofferson] I like Kris because he writes poetry and he’s a fucking good man. Working with Kris on Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (1973) was one of the great experiences of my life.
