"I would say that the only people who really interest me are the outcasts from society. The people who are not outcasts--either psychologically, emotionally, or physically--seem to me good material for selling breakfast food, but they're not material for films. What I'm really trying to say through the figure of the outcast is that society has its mirror in its outcasts. A society would be wise to pay attention to the people who do not belong if it wants to find out what its configuration is and where it's failing." --Arthur Penn, quoted in "World Film Directors, Volume Two", edited by John Wakeman
