“A FILM IS NEVER REALLY GOOD UNLESS THE CAMERA IS AN EYE IN THE HEAD OF A POET.”
- Orson Welles
“I BELIEVE THAT FILMMAKING - AS, PROBABLY, IS EVERYTHING - IS A GAME YOU SHOULD PLAY WITH ALL YOUR CARDS, AND ALL YOUR DICE, AND WHATEVER ELSE YOU’VE GOT. SO, EACH TIME I MAKE A MOVIE, I GIVE IT EVERYTHING I HAVE. I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD, AND I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD DO EVERYTHING THEY DO THAT WAY.”
- Francis Ford Coppola
“BEING AN ARTIST MEANS NOT HAVING TO AVERT ONE’S EYES.”
- Akira Kurosawa
