For me, it’s not like, “Oh I did a nice job” or “I didn’t do a nice job.” The most fascinating part of movies is the organism of the movie—it’s such a bizarre thing to do, to make a movie. To see these people come together, band in unity, to create this thing that almost doesn’t exist. It only exists because it’s projected on a screen, but other than that, it’s an illusion.
“If efforts never lied, the one who practices the most would win time after time. But, as of course, no matter how hard a person works, if they can’t win, they can’t win. And conversely, much younger athletes may overtake them forcefully. Therefore, efforts do lie. But that doesn’t mean efforts are in vain. It is precisely because efforts lie that we are prompted to think about how to work hard in a different way, and find the correct direction in which to expend our efforts.” – Yuzuru Hanyu
