Quote of the Day
Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.
A woman can be very beautiful and an ideal model and she will photograph incredibly well, but she'll appear in film and it won't work. What works is some fusion of physical beauty with some mental field or whatever you call it. I don't know.
Pain is temporary, film is forever.
Michael J. Fox
I like the smell of film. I just like knowing there's film going through the camera.
I write for film or, in this case, television when I haven't got a play cooking.
Luck is everything... My good luck in life was to be a really frightened person. I'm fortunate to be a coward, to have a low threshold of fear, because a hero couldn't make a good suspense film.
The memory of that scene for me is like a frame of film forever frozen at that moment: the red carpet, the green lawn, the white house, the leaden sky. The new president and his first lady.
Richard M. Nixon
I wouldn't make an anti-American film. I'm one of the most pro-American foreigners I know. I love America and Americans.
I think making a good film shot is joyful.
Film editing is now something almost everyone can do at a simple level and enjoy it, but to take it to a higher level requires the same dedication and persistence that any art form does.
If I weren't a director, I would want to be a film composer.
Even if I set out to make a film about a fillet of sole, it would be about me.
Theater is still a medium which attracts young writers. You'd think that it would be all over by now, with television and film. But it's not.
Actors are agents of change. A film, a piece of theater, a piece of music, or a book can make a difference. It can change the world.
I didn't grow up thinking of movies as film, or art, but as movies, something to do on a Saturday afternoon.
I think cinema, movies, and magic have always been closely associated. The very earliest people who made film were magicians.
Francis Ford Coppola
I'm not a film star, I am an actress. Being a film star is such a false life, lived for fake values and for publicity.
I'm working on bringing the instant film camera back as part of the future.
Appropriation is the idea that ate the art world. Go to any Chelsea gallery or international biennial and you'll find it. It's there in paintings of photographs, photographs of advertising, sculpture with ready-made objects, videos using already-existing film.
When I did the film Generations, in which the character died, I felt like a guest for the first time. That made me very sad.
There's an ecstasy about doing something really good on film: the composition of a shot, the drama within the shot, the texture... It's palpable.
I'm anxious to make another film.
Gradually the live TV scene simmered out, replaced by film, and that took place in L.A. So many actors left New York.
The secret to film is that it's an illusion.
I'm more likely to lose my temper on a film set than almost anywhere. Often the level of idiocy is so exalted that it's impossible to comprehend.
I also paint, draw and I'm into film and photography as well, and the same thing applies to all of them. You're presenting this material to the general public and hoping that they're going to 'get' what you're doing. Some don't, some do.
I'd like to do a number of films. Westerns. Genre pieces. Maybe another film about Italian Americans where they're not gangsters, just to prove that not all Italians are gangsters.
It's not just about acting. I love film, I'm a director now, I love writing, I love producing, I love having a company that makes films and to be prolific and have a place to put all the ideas that are constantly bubbling up inside of me and that don't let me sleep at night.
No film critic's going to say it, but 'Madagascar 3' is better than 'The Artist.'
I'm very manipulative towards directors. My theory is that everyone on the set is directing the film, we're all receiving art messages from the universe on how we should do the film.
