Great man. It will be a long time before we see his like in Hollywood again.

Seconded. Everyone on the forum should read this interview in his entirety. He nails the current millennial culture.

"Youth today has a sense of rightful entitlement. They don’t have ambition. They don’t have a draft. They don’t have a Vietnam. They don’t have any of this. They’re not going to face that kind of stuff, and they don’t want any part of it. So they don’t make it for themselves either. Their idea of great adventure is extreme sports, diving off bridges with bungee cords. They don’t go off and do something real. There are no youth movements. There aren’t any revolutions being fought today. They’re all interested in getting their piece. You know, being where it’s at. Being hip. Looking good. Getting that BMW."

He also talks about how his movies have a code of morality to them. In society now we are seeing instead sheer opportunism, nobody cares about their actions or any consequences. In fact society doesn't punish people anymore for certain things and degeneracy has been accepted. This isn't only women, but men as well.
