Sam Peckinpah's quotes

  • I want to be able to make westerns like [Akira Kurosawa] makes westerns.
  • The end of a picture is always an end of a life.
  • [interview in Le Devoir, 10/12/74] I don't want to hear it said that I don't like women! I tried to show in [Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974)] that I adore them. They represent the positive pole of the film, the life force and instinct.
  • [on Kris Kristofferson] I like Kris because he writes poetry and he's a fucking good man. Working with Kris on Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (1973) was one of the great experiences of my life.
  • [Responding to critics of his films as being too violent] Well, killing a man isn't clean and quick and simple. It's bloody and awful. And maybe if enough people come to realize that shooting somebody isn't just fun and games, maybe we'll get somewhere.
  • [on R.G. Armstrong] R.G. Armstrong played righteous villainy better than anybody I've ever seen.
  • There is a great streak of violence in every human being. If it is not channeled and understood, it will break out in war or in madness.
