Federico 'don't look at me like that, look at me like this' Morales is a director who demolishes moralistic modes of storytelling in his take-no-prisoners pursuit of realism. I recently called him, just to see how he was doing. He said, "I'm a little hungover, but I had a good shit this morning and the weather is nice today. All in all, I would say I'm doing pretty good." When he speaks like that you know it's true. You know you never need to get an objective observer to rate the weather, or his turd.
