What fulfills me most when I watch one of my films is finding unintentional things; this makes me the happiest. I find a lot of things that I don't like and that make me want to scream...But sometimes I find one of those unintentional things, maybe even a mistake, that I really like...I have gotten to the conclusion that if my films are bad, it's solely my fault, if there is something good in them, then it's fate.
