    • Everybody has this function, the role is enacted, consciously or not, and playing it well or poorly. It's your self-story, the way you dramatize yourself to yourself (and to others, but that is secondary). You can't avoid doing it, even the anti-narrative folks have to account for themselves.
    • Being aware of the process as such is something else, of course. That happens at a distinct level of development, I think.
    • You can make your own moves from a point of zero turn the zero camera on yourself. You never see anything else anyway.
    • The Burroughs clip was urging something rather specific, a sort of passive take-it-all-in directorial style. That does not seem to be the only way to direct.
