He did make beautiful pictures about beautiful people . I wonder what he`d say about the garbage churned out now. The audience gets to see men using urinals and women sitting on toilets. This is all in the name of realism , just an excuse to gross you out. It is certainly NOT beautiful or entertaining! Teach.
