But I do not analyze it. In my thoughts it made whole sense. Maybe it is one thing ingrained in me from the films I watched as a child that had an enormous impact on me, and there was a variety.”
He continued: “There have been the loopy catastrophe films, like ‘The Poseidon Adventure.’ Or ‘Jaws.’ Or sci-fi films in a bizarre dystopia, like ‘Planet of the Apes.’ All of these I cherished. There was a human high quality about all of them, however in a disconnected world.
