Personal Quote:

[on formal techniques, refusal to explain character motivations in conventional cinematic manner]

Every kind of explanation is just something that's there to make you feel better, and at the same time it's a lie. It's a lie to calm you, because the real explanation would be so complex, it would be impossible to have in 90 minutes of film or 200 pages of a novel. See more »
