"Q. You're also one of the few filmmakers who self-distributes on a large scale.
[Jaglom] I do that because the Samuel Goldwyn Company did a nice job distributing a film of mine called Always (1985). I watched what they did, and I thought, Oh, I can do that. Put a few people in an office making phone calls to art theaters around the country, somebody else making posters and trailers and sending them out. I'm a little bit of a control freak, and I thought, let's try this. And I tried it, and not just with my films; I've distributed Monty Python's films. I'm distributing a film Maximillian Schell made about his sister Maria, a documentary. When Robert DeNiro had a film he wanted distributed that he had produced called Mistress (1992), and he couldn't get a good deal that he liked, he gave it to me and we distributed it."
