He wrote: “I was at this party once and Spielberg was there and i said to him, ‘You’re so lucky because the things you love millions of people love, and the things I love thousands of people love.’ 그는 말했다, ‘David, we’re getting to the point where just as many people will have seen Eraserhead as have seen Jaws.’ 나는 그것에 대해 모른다.
