|"This was never to me a film about Robert Crumb. It was always the story of these three brothers, and how one made it and the others didn't. . . . I'm very comfortable with the film, but what I can't control is how people interpret [it]. I spent a lot of time with that family on film because I wanted people to get past that initial reaction of, 'Oh, here we have . . . people who are sort of crazy.' I thought they were a very brilliant family." --Terry Zwigoff in DAILY NEWS, April 24, 1995|
|"I've got a chance to make a documentary on Woody Allen, but I might just do a feature instead because documentarians get treated like such second-class citizens." --Zwigoff quoted in VARIETY, January 21, 1996|
|Zwigoff on refusing to make a movie with a big name actor that has greater influence in making a movie than the director: "I cannot force myself to do that, not because I have any integrity necessarily or arrogance about it. I just wouldn't know how to direct a person who is wrong for a role."
"I don't have that many years left," he added. "The films I want to make, I really want to be passionate about."---From Reuters, May 4, 2006.
