"Entertainment is not the reality of the streets. I think we should depict that and show it as it is, but we get it in the news. When it comes to entertainment, we should have a fantasyland… a chance to get away from the reality in the streets and dream a little, hope a little and laugh a little. Surely that’s not asking too much."
