(1.)  “But it’s important to really understand that Hollywood is like a really, really expensive prostitute.”
(2.)  “Some people consider me worse than Hitler, luckily for others

(1.)  “I believe there’s a 16-year old girl in every man.”
(2.)  “I don’t like human beings, specifically. I think we were born evil, somehow.”

(3.)  “We can surmise that Stone became a grunt in Vietnam to ‘become a man’ and to become a writer. As Platoon, a coming-of-age film, demonstrates, he went through his rite of passage, but, as Platoon also demonstrates, he become a very bad writer—a hype artist.”
(1.)  Nicholas Winding Refn
(2.)  Tom Six
(3.)  Pauline Kael
