It would ruin your career to make the wrong film. David Fincher holds this ideal very high in his work. Considering he turns down ninety percent of the projects that are offered to him, you can only imagine what the world would be like if he just started pumping them out.
The industry is like a mass production factory, pumping out eye candy, contrived explosions and the young half naked centerfold whose life is apparently in danger.
I'm not saying it's a horrible thing to give the people what they want, I'm just afraid of becoming marginalized in the almost premature adolescence of my career in the motion picture industry.
