    Film No. 4 (aka 'Bottoms') (1966)

    ON FILM NO. 4 (in taking the bottoms of 365 saints of our time). I wonder why men can get serious at all. They have this delicate long thing hanging outside their bodies, which goes up and down by its own will. First of all having it outside your body is terribly dangerous. If I were a man I would have a fantastic castration complex to the point that I wouldn't be able to do a thing. Second, the inconsistency of it, like carrying a chance time alarm or something...

    THE ROOM OF YOUR OWN MAKING IX: Take all the anger out of the room. Take all the sorrow out of the room. Take all the shadows out of the room. Open the window. Let everything in the room breathe the ocean wind.

    VERTICAL MEMORY (1997): Attendant. I saw a dark hole in a shape of an arch. I saw my body being slid into it. It looked like the arch I came out of at birth, I thought. I asked where it was going to take me to. The guy stood there looking at me without saying a word, as I lay down. It all seemed very familiar. What percentage of my life did I take it lying down? That was the last question I asked in my mind.
