Inaugural Steinberg

Simic on Steinberg, here
"He liked mixing styles, making it look as if Picasso or Rembrandt had drawn someone's head and a comic strip artist the legs and feet. 
America, where all the people are under the impression that they can reinvent themselves endlessly, suited him well."


Am I Gonna Get Away With This?

"'I think what was on my mind when I was risking losing my Lionel train set was me thinking, 'Am I going to get away with this?' he recounted. 'That anxiety has been haunting me throughout my entire movie career. Whenever I've tried to tell a risky story, whether it's about sharks or dinosaurs or about aliens or about history, I'll always be thinking, 'Am I going to get away with this?"'

Inspiration itself.
