”Film directors can be divided into two categories: Those who strive to imitate the world they live in, to recreate the world that surrounds them and the directors who create their own worlds. Those who create their own worlds are generally the poets. They are: Bresson, above all, Dovzhenko, Mizoguchi, Bergman, Buñuel, Kurosawa and however strange it may sound, the most prominent in filmmaking. That is why they have trouble getting their films out. Because the audience is used to a symbolic, non-existent film world. The result of the audience’s own interests and tastes. The directors I named have all opposed this, that the taste of the audience should be the deciding factor. Not because they want to be obscure but because they want to listen secretly, to give expression to what is deep inside those we call the audience.” - Andrei Tarkovsky
