All art is technology, and all artists eventually end up pushing against that technology, whether it's developing a new red or a new blue or whatever. You're always faced with some kind of constraint that holds you back. The cinema is an extremely technological medium. So you're defined by two barriers: One is resources; one is technology. And Star Wars, especially, bumped up against those. So I was never able to tell the story that I wanted to tell. I had to self-censor the story down to something that I knew that could be done given the technology I had available.
