Personal Quotes (3)

[interview in Publishers Weekly, 4/20/90] Writing reviews in the 1970s was so exhilarating. The women's movement was cresting, and yet women were disappearing from the screen . . . I remember arguing that women actually had it better under the studio system in the old days, when they had economic leverage and a whole apparatus for creating and sustaining stardom. Gee, I had so much to say!
[on Mary Pickford] She was a little girl with gumption and self-reliance who could get herself out of trouble as easily as into it.
[on her early resistance to Steven Spielberg's films] I had never been an ardent fan...He always wanted his films to 'arrive' someplace. But brooding ambiguities, unresolved longings, things left unsaid, and erotic transactions of men and women are the very things that drew me to movies in the first place. His great subjects - children, adolescents and genres: science fiction, fantasy, horror, action-adventure - were stay-away zones for me.
