If you purposefully look to shock people, it isn’t funny. That’s what 50 million dollar Hollywood comedies do; try to be shocking and dirty. They aren’t really. It isn’t enough to shock. It’s easy to shock. Real surprise is what I’m after. Those early movies, we had drugs, which you weren’t supposed to show. You weren’t supposed to shoot up. We would make fun of hippies. I think that we were punk before there was punk.
