Eccentric doesn't bother me. 'Eccentric' being a poetic interpretation of a mathematical term meaning something that doesn't follow the lines - that's okay.
The United States has it's own propaganda, but it's very effective because people don't realize that it's propaganda. And it's subtle, but it's actually a much stronger propaganda machine than the Nazis had but it's funded in a different way.
I'm not somebody who believes that darkness is something that should necessarily be hidden from children or anything like that.

Most of the actors in the film have Down syndrome, ... Originally this was going to be a short film to promote to corporate entities that it's a viable idea to work with a cast with Down syndrome.
It's originally a mathematical term, ... Something that veers off the line is eccentric, not concentric. If you look at the poetry of that, there really isn't anything wrong with going off the line and exploring different things.
I usually describe it as, 'Being the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are snails, salt, pipe and how to get home -- as tormented by a hubristic, racist inner psyche,'
He took exception to that, and he's right, ... This is culture. What is counterculture is 'The Anna Nicole Smith Show.'
But there's a difference between having artistic interests and being psychotic. That's more than a fine line of differentiation, and I do see that a bit too much.
People watch movies - and it's vague ideas, it's vague notions, but people pick up on these things, that they are supposed to think certain ways or that they're not supposed to think, basically, and they don't.
I do like things that are not necessarily a reflection of what is considered the right thing by this culture. Somehow, promoting that status quo I find uninteresting.
