(underlying) Messages (in his work)

"That's a very dangerous thing. It's important to think about it but it's like money - if you think of it first then you're like- a politician. You're gearing your campaign around winning, and everything you say is to make the message known - and a message is a load of crap. I don't know what I want to say to people. I get ideas and I want to put them on film because they thrill me. You may say that people look for meaning in everything, but they don't. They've got life going on around them, but they don't look for meaning there. They look for meaning when they go to a movie. I don't know why people expect art to make sense when they accept the fact that life doesn't make sense."
