I've never achieved spectacular success with a film. My reputation has grown slowly. I suppose you could say that I'm a successful filmmaker - in that a number of people speak well of me. But none of my films have received unanimously positive reviews, and none have done blockbuster business.
Despite being known for his meticulous methods of filming, he was quite prolific in his earlier years. Beginning with Fear and Desire
(1953) and ending with Barry Lyndon
(1975), the average time between his films was two years. His last three films took much longer to complete. It took him five years to complete and release The Shining
(1980), seven years to complete Full Metal Jacket
