"He was hugely talented, but he was surrounded by so many creeps. I often think if he had died after making 'Angel Heart', he would have been a legend on the scale of James Dean. Maybe he still will be."---Adrian Lyne to People, October 10, 1994.
"I want to work with interesting material that has integrity. It doesn't have to have a big f***ing message, so long as you can take chances. I don't want to just make action movies with guns blazing."---Rourke to Empire, July 2005.
