This means that he doesn't have the option to go back and re-edit films. "I accept all my errors, and my films have many of them." You have to accept that the "child has a stutter, a squint, a limp." The great filmmaker delivered many gems and to a packed house of filmmakers and asp...

Always a Bridesmaid? Hell NO! by Kimberly Deisler
