"How can an artist be expected not to be self-indulgent? That’s the whole thing that’s wrong with filmmaking today. Ninety nine percent of the films you see do not qualify as works of art. To me, art is one man’s voice, one idea, one point-of-view, coming from one person. Self-indulgent to me means it’s one man’s obsession. That’s what great artists bring to the table. When fucking critics or whatever say, ‘he’s self-indulgent,’ I don’t know what that means."
