Interviewer: Do you feel filmmakers should always indulge themselves? 
Ken Russell: I don’t quite know what that means. Films are hard to make and I think the word indulge really leads one to believe that it’s an easy sort of business and it’s really extremely difficult. You’ll be standing out there in the rain thinking that it’s not an easy job being a film director. But the director is the director and if he feels for whatever reason, perhaps under great delusion, that he wants that scene and he can get away with it even though it might be questionable in terms of taste then he should be allowed to do it. It’s his movie. But if the committee steps in and says you can’t do that because we’re going to cut it out then it’s a waste of time.
