whatever - you are always right fred
my experience and knowledge has no validity for you
i get it
i think jonas's reaction speaks for itself
also i think the number one 'advocate' for avant garde film is not jonas but
these kinds of absolutes do not really interest me anyway
and for your info what my problem is is the truth
rewrite history not based on the facts - whatever
argue with irrelevant vapid info - have fun
as usual you alienate the truth and are not open to multi-faceted experience
that is true to life
creating gods of men - so boring
