I've made some great movies. Risky Business (1983) still stands up. It's timeless. They study that film in film school.
I feel a terrifically painful disturbance in the natural law of things between men and women that must be balanced in the next few thousand years. What has been done in the name of holding up masculine energy as God and feminine energy as subservient has really wiped out everything.
