When my films appeared, many regarded me as a perverse creation who, at the very least, slept in a coffin. You see, that is not true - I am an orthodox English bourgeois… There are two great surrealist artists - the Belgian Magritte and the Spaniard Dali. Dali put so much energy and fantasy into his life that they were obviously missing in his art. Magritte, on the other hand, unobtrusive, even unnoticeable in behaviour and appearance, created masterpieces of surrealism. I find Magritte’s model acceptable - I want to enjoy all the bourgeois benefits and in my art, to push back the generally accepted boundaries
