I could not imagine a work of art that would prompt a person to do something bad. There can be no talk of art in relation to films like 'The Exterminator'.
My purpose as far as possible is to make films that will help people to live, even if they sometimes cause unhappiness— and I don't mean the sort of tears that 'Kramer vs. Kramer' produces.
Perhaps you have noticed that the more pointless people's tears during a film, the more profound the reason for those tears.
I am not talking about sentimentality, but about how art can reach to the depths of the human soul and leave man defenseless against good.
