The films I like are not a mean to escape from the world around/inside me. They are the reflection or interpretation of the world. That's why I love personal cinema. In the past few centuries man has been accustomed with literary books, but today's major mode of communication is the audio visual medium and it can get more and more personal and serious as everyone with a camera learns its potentials. The cinema that doesn't try to please may not be a good commodity, but it would touch those who are ready to involve.
