rejecting stories

Still working my way through The Film Experience....
and came upon another relevant quote:

"Stories give people the feeling that there is meaning, that there is ultimately an order lurking behind the incredible confusion of appearances and phenomena that surrounds them....I totally reject stories, because for me they only bring out lies...and the biggest lie is that they show coherence where there is none...Stories are impossible, but it's impossible to live without them."
Wim Wenders, director of Paris, Texas (1984) and Wings of Desire (1988)
