There were times during the writing of the last series when I thought: 'What is the point? I'm just completely unhappy, completely torn apart by this process'.

It's great when people can go into a movie house for an hour and a half and just see Fred Astaire or Abbott and Costello. They laugh, and they've had a breather from the storm, and that should be the function of films - not The Bicycle Thief or The Grand Illusion or Bergman, where, you know, people have a pretty hard life, and they come into the cinema and get confronted again with these problems on an intellectual or emotional level.

Woody Allen, Guardian

You see, I think farting is in good taste and I think bloodshed is in bad taste. A winking sexual joke is fine, but actually to show a bare breast or pubic hair is not. It's really bad. It's a put-off . . . You can't be aroused, really aroused, and laugh. You choose one or the other, and I choose laughter.

Mel Brooks, Sunday Telegraph
