But when you need to do something for the movie …
in the sand, for example:  it’s terrible to make love in the sand.
It’s very beautiful, but your sex is full of pebbles.  It’s not so pleasant.
 I think that a dwarf is a woman, not a dwarf.  And I used the little
woman in the film because I think it’s beautiful to use a woman like her.
  Maybe in my next film I’ll use a woman who weighs two-hundred kilos.
Really.  I’ve always thought that if I ever direct Hamlet, Ophelia will be
a giant.  Not a two-hundred kilo giant, but a five-hundred kilo giant.
 And I’ll make an artificial river that runs through Manhattan, and the
giant Ophelia will swim down to the river destroying all the skyscrapers.
Really, I want to use a woman who is bigger than her man.  Why not?
 Beauty is never, never, never used by the movie industry. Like Hollywood
in the 40’s, right?  Hollywood never knew the beauty of a woman.
You feel  beauty.  There’s beauty in a woman or there isn’t.
You feel a woman, you like a woman, she is very attractive to you.
Maybe you think she is a man.  But she’s a woman.   She’s like a man,
but she’s a very wonderful woman.  Like a man.  Once I was very attracted
to a very fat woman, but big … huge, who was knitting a very thing little
woolen stocking.  Red.  Little.  I thought she was a poet.  I thought she
was knitting a stocking for her navel.  We have a navel in each stocking.
 We do.  We have a navel in our hand.  It’s a symbol of a large blossom.
And these wounds are ”giving” wounds and they can heal.
And the wounds in our feet are ”receiving” wounds and they heal you.
That’s why it’s imperative for you to be able to put your foot
anywhere on your body so you can kick yourself.
Yes.  So you can kick yourself.  OK?

-Alejandro Jodorowsky
