Penelope Spheeris's quotes

  • The Decline of Western Civilization (1981) was financed by two businessmen from the Valley who wanted to finance films. They had no idea I was going in to pitch a punk rock movie.
  • I generally think about myself as someone who studies human behavior and is trying to figure out what the hell is going on in our current society. If I can leave any film that helps define a certain time after I'm dead then that's great.
  • [on Mike Myers] I hated that bastard for years. But when I saw Austin Powers, I went, 'I forgive you, Mike. You can be moody, you can be a jerk, you can be things that others of us can't be - because you are profoundly talented. And I forgive you.'
  • L.A. is the make-it city where everyone wants to be a star and so frustration is at its epitome.
  • Punk rockers are the termites in the woodwork of society. But somehow I love them.
  • [on why kids in the Los Angeles punk scene are so angry] These kids see the good life every day on TV. They see how perfect the world can be and they get frustrated because it isn't perfect for them.
  • [on leaving Hollywood after being frustrated over a lack of decent projects] They can blow me.
  • [making movies] Filmmaking is about trying to master or change reality, and have your own interpretation of it. It's kind of an ego trip in a way.
  • [being a female director] As a woman, when you do a movie that doesn't do well, then you're done. You're in director jail.
