"For me, cinema has the same fascination you feel during an eclipse and you see a close-up of the sun with protuberances shooting out that are thousands of times larger than our own planet down here. It is for this reason that I am loathe to address many of the points critics raise about my films, because when everything is explained it gets boring very quickly. It is always the mysterious and those things which do not fit perfectly into a story—the inexplicable images or twists in the tale—that stick out and are memorable. Sometimes I will place a scene or shot into a film that might seem to have no place, yet this is essential to our understanding of the story being told."
