▶ "The music of the most popular operas is so highly esteemed, it can stand endless revivals."; "Tender Mercies is a very low-budget film, but it was a huge budget compared to anything I had done in Australia. My fee for Tender Mercies was something like five times all of my Australian films combined."; "Quite a few operas are still being commissioned around the world, although nothing apart from audience popularity can ensure more than a few performances."; "Perhaps the most difficult thing is shooting scenes set 6,000 feet up in the mountains of Mexico."; "It is essential to do everything possible to attract young people to opera so they can see that it is not some antiquated art form but a repository of the most glorious music and drama that man has created."; …
"In silent movies, they tended to put the camera down, and everybody walked in front of it and acted, and then they all walked off. Cutting was quite infrequent."; "In my view, the operas of Carlisle Floyd will find a place in the permanent repertoire."; "In Australia, they set up a special fund to kick films off. It was quite an enlightened sort of move. You could go to this government bureau with scripts and and get finance for films."; "For a director, the most challenging scenes are the dialogue scenes."; "Film is shot in fragments, and the same moments can be shot again and again until the director is satisfied."; "Everyone has seen photographs of Mexicans wearing those big sombreros. When you come to Mexico, the astonishing thing is, nobody wears these hats at all."; "Directing an opera is similar to directing a play. The singing must not get in the way of the drama."; "At HBO, they seem to be well-informed. They make what I think are really quite mature films."
