"It seems to me, the time has come to walk the right way, on the wrong path and there is only one way we won't get lost... -Let's forget each other but let's not forget..."

"What I am unforgiven for, is not my constancy with my obsessions, but my obsession with constancy..."

"During the time I wanted to use a bomb, no organization would accept me. So I dropped my bombs with Singapore Sling, Morning Patrol and Sweet Bunch. And these are not sofa films..."

"I consider Hell a magnificently erotic place. Of course I believe in Hell as a solution, and if we could establish it here and now, it would be something wonderful."

"I live in movies 24 hours a day. And when the movie of my life is no good, I change my life. I don't need to constantly print all of that on film."

"I speak when I have something important to say. Besides, I am very lazy. I believe I am more creative through my laziness."

"...Moreover, I am a someone who never took himself seriously. It was only when I started generating enemies that I got a bit smug and started to believe that something grand is happening to me."

"I was annoyed by dependency... I think I may have betrayed some people, just to feel more lonely, more complete, more independent and free to express myself."

"My characters are by no means fragile and are never shattered. They are simply free willed. They choose to be unproductive and they are anti-consumers of possessions and ideas."

"For me, a woman is a divine yet simultaneously catastrophic being. The women I know are demonic creatures. They own the rights to everything. And I like them that way, even though they corner me against a wall."
