What Else She Said

I think all of the work that I do transforms me every minute. It affects me sometimes in a negative way because there aren't any movies that I can go to -- very few really. I don't mind going as long as I know what's in them, and sometimes people see these movies in completely different ways than I do. Like 'Monsoon Wedding,' which is a wonderful movie, but nobody said that there was a whole incest subplot -- not in one review... So in that way, it's difficult for me to live in the world because I sometimes think that I see the world in a completely different way. In that way I think that I've been impacted in sort of an adverse way. But otherwise I feel transformed.
