    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“You know, when you're in your twenties you use a great deal of symbolism. You somehow think that a character standing beneath a cross is more interesting than a character standing underneath a billboard, but when you get a little older you realize that there's not much difference.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The problem with The Exorcist was that I wasn't holding any cards. They paid me for the movie, so they own the movie. It's like if you made this chair and I buy it from you. You want me to sit on the chair, and I want to put it in my fireplace. What are you gonna do? Time to go off and make another chair.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It's an old-fashioned romance of the highest order, a real melodrama, which I wrote and directed and financed. Nobody paid me to do this film. If a studio had made it, everyone would be saying that I had whored out, but in fact I had to fight to raise the financing, so if I did whore out, I whored out to my own melodramatic side.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I don't believe that anymore but you certainly know that world. But I wasn't Catholic. It was slightly different. The metaphorical strength of that stuff, of those stories, whether it's stories from the Bible or stories from contemporary mythology like The Exorcist have enormous metaphorical weight.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It's great when somebody comes at you and says, 'We have a big serious movie and we want to hire you because you're a serious person'. Particularly in today's world, when you spend so much of your time pretending that you're not.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“[Paul Schrader breaks into a wheezy cackle as he recalls a conversation he had recently with his fellow director, Robert Altman. As is the wont of two seasoned mavericks, they were discussing the cruel nature of Hollywood.] He was laughing, ... He said, 'Every time you think they've fucked you every way they can, they come up with a new way!'”
