Personal Quotes (3)

The first thing that I want is for the visuals to look great, sensual and colorful and for the sound to be great. You get more sophisticated when you learn more. You can make the artifice more and more and more subtle and combine it with a naturalistic approach. But it gets tricky. My first efforts are crudest. As I get better, it's going to seem more conventional. But conventions are fetishes for me. The more conventional I become, the stranger the films are.
I'm less interested now in making the audience aware that they're watching a movie, but that's because I've been misunderstood a lot. I don't want it to be a joke. I'm very frustrated when people find my movies to be a joke, because of the artifice. They're real stories about real things. I'd like to take away that block. But I don't know if I can, due to my natural campiness and my personal tastes.
Film is like sex. Film fulfills all my expectations, all my fetishes. Video doesn't satisfy anything for me. If I couldn't work on film anymore, I would just go back to painting or writing, or writing music. I'd just stop making films.
