I probably am a lazy artist and probably don’t control things as much as some people would like- but that’s my business. And if my style is too loose or improvised for some people’s taste, that’s their problem- totally. The fact is, I’m not the greatest Hollywood director and that bullshit, but I’m not the opposite either. And I am not careless. I may be irresponsible, I may strive for things and not always succeed. but that’s never the result of sloppiness. Maybe it’s lack of judgment.

dir. Altman
