"If we are looking at film, I will show someone where they made a mistake and what they need to do better. But I also will show them on film, where I made that same mistake and what I need to do to correct it. You know, I watch film all the time. I probably have 20 tapes right now. When nothing good is on T.V., I pop in a tape. I have tapes from all over."
