I believe, to the contrary, that failure is talent. To succeed is to fail.
I am convinced that there is no great filmmaker who does not sacrifice something. Renoir will sacrifice anything — plot dialogue, technique — to get a better performance from an actor. Hitchcock sacrifices believability in order to present an extreme situation that he has chosen in advance. … But a film that succeeds, according to the common wisdom, is one in which all the elements are equally balanced in a whole that merits the adjective ‘perfect.’`
