I will only speak off the record about Debra Winger.
The British cinema had been very dull and conformist.
Minority views expressed in films simply don't sell tickets.
I'm now beginning to feel that the pessimistic vision is not for the movies.
A big element of what they regard as conformity is simply a desire to have an audience.
There's a great danger in making this seem more important than it is, this whole Free Cinema thing.
A style is not a matter of camera angles or fancy footwork, it's an expression, an accurate expression of your particular opinion.
I said I would do all the films about the commercials, and the films about ball-bearings and Ford tractors and so on, if once a year they gave me money for a free film.
