So please ask yourself: What would I do if I weren’t afraid? And then go do it.
It’s natural to worry that the colossal success of a tightly formatted movie such as the new ‘Transformers’ will only stiffen the resolve of studios to repeat it, or will only solidify the shapes of existing pigeonholes and sideline unusual and distinctive movies even further. Yet such concern reduces to a mere snobbery of taste, a straw-person diversion akin to an opera house blaming low attendance at a production of ‘Salomé’ on a Miley Cyrus concert.
Given how long it’s taken me to reconcile my nature, I can’t figure I’d forego it on your account.
