(2002 quote) "Since the `70s I`ve seen myself as a poet. Sometimes I express that poetry through acting, sometimes through cooking, and sometimes just having a good chat, you know, one of them chats you have when you`re stoned and the hour is getting late. I don`t know what`s gonna come my way, but I think Berenger`s gonna be big these next couple years."

Features don`t even run in theaters very long anymore before going right to television. And every other movie is one of those action things. I mean, Lost in Space?--a bunch of good actors running around shooting at special effects on a soundstage? I took my kids to see that and almost felt like I was on an acid trip. Most of what gets made now, you laugh your way through, go home and forget you`ve seen it.
