No not because his Dad could hook you up with any medicine you would like to have (well the legal ones and more or less only those your doc also would prescribe to you - yes his dad was a pharmacist) - no but someone who dared to fight systems and who spoke out against anything he didn't like in society or filmmaking for that matter.

You don't have to actually agree with everything he said (I know I had issues with things he said and did, but that is natural, we are all different, we all experience things differently - no I do not want to get into an esoterical mood), but you can't deny that he had charisma. You may not even have heard much about him (especially if you live outside Germany, but even those in Germany might not be entirely aware of him and his work), but he was a thorn for many people and a genius to others.

He reflects here quite nicely and in a self depracting way too. It is tough to not like him as a person, again no matter what you may think of his artistic output. And if you do not feel for him and his illness and what he had to go through. I'm not sure I will watch any of his movies any time soon, but I admire his persistence and even though he did have some luck along the way, he did try to do as best as he could. And that is all one can ask for. Maybe this will be the inspiration some need to finally do what they meant to be doing ... I know I should follow some of my dreams too, that I keep pushing back ..
