NOTE: This interview can be found on the Criterion edition of LA COLLECTIONNEUSE (1967).

Here is an interview filled, perhaps unsurprisingly, with a fair share of classic quotes.
Eric Rohmer is teeming with thoughts on American film, the absurdity of fictionalizing news stories, screenwriting, what sort of audience his films appeal to, and Gene Hackman’s quip from Bonnie and Clyde equating the director’s work with watching paint dry (It seems he wasn’t big on the New Hollywood thing in general, though, having missed Penn’s film and Lumet’s Dog Day Afternoon).
