“Our job is, we just blow into town, tell everybody to keep going, and we blow on out.”

“For writers and filmmakers, the more ethnic it is, the more universal it is. The more Swedish a film is, the more we like it, the more we understand it. It’s when they try to water it down, and try to second-guess the foreign audience that you run into trouble. Even Spike Lee — the more black his films are, the more universal they are. The whiter the Beach Boys are, the better they are. I know a lot of people don’t like the Beach Boys because they say they are too white. I say, that’s what’s good about them. That’s one of the main ingredients. Joni Mitchell, the Beach Boys, Buddy Holly are really great artists because they are as white as they can get.”

My take on this is a slight variation. If you are going to make something, make it as individual as possible, as personal as it can possibly be. The uniqueness to your approach or your story is what’s interesting.
