More

Schroeder was conscious that in the climate of the time some might see the film as moralizing against drugs but he was adamant that this was not his aim. In a 1969 interview*, he described More as 'the story of someone who sets out on a quest for the Sun and who is not sufficiently armed to carry it through successfully... I did not want to deal with the drug problem; I used drugs in relationship to the characters. Drugs only interfere as an element in a destruction, only as a motor in a sado-masochistic relationship between a boy and a girl... If my film is against anything, it is against attachments, illusions, selfishness, egotism, alienation... I have no compassion for my hero. Someone who destroys himself is very unattractive to me.'
