Quote of the Day

Films that are entertainments give simple answers but I think that's ultimately more cynical, as it denies the viewer room to think. If there are more answers at the end, then surely it is a richer experience.
It's what you don't see that keeps you on the edge of your seat in any kind of film - leave it to the imagination of the viewer.
A still image attracts the viewer with an overall impact, then reveals smaller details upon further study.
There's something imminent in the work, but the circle is only completed by the viewer.
With Frat House, at times I needed to make music that would reflect what these fraternity brothers might actually listen to, but still keep it within the realm of a score; it still had to lead the viewer through the scene, or just help create the mood.
I think the notion of traditional anchor is fading away - the all-knowing, all-seeing person who speaks from on high. I don't think the audience really buys that anymore. As a viewer, I know I don't buy it.
Most conservative and progressive talk radio is primarily just that - bloviated opinion and whacky viewer calls.
I love Bollywood as a viewer, but going in front of the camera and singing and dancing is not my thing.
I focus on the elements of a movie that are meant to invisibly affect me as a viewer. The edges. As an author, I'm aware of how the subconscious things can pluck at a reader's emotions, and I love it when filmmakers do the same.
I'm not going to let people get away with either a dishonest or inaccurate premise to what we're talking about because I think that does the viewer a disturbance.
But I don't think of any particular viewer in mind other than myself.
Every film is faced with the enemy of time. Only so much story can fit into the 90-150 minutes of time that moviegoers are willing to stay in their seats. Naturally, compression is necessary. So are the exclusion and amalgamation of characters so that the viewer does not become bewildered.
Sound creates an intimate effect: the sensation to feel the place. It makes the viewer enter. You have the liberty to hear what you want.
You set up a story and it turns inside out and that is, for me, the most exciting sort of story to write. The viewer thinks it's going to be about something and it does the opposite.
I think if you're a regular viewer of Fox News, you're among the most cynical people on planet Earth. I cannot think of a more cynical slogan than 'Fair and Balanced.'
I'm interested in the space between the viewer and the surface of the painting - the forms and the way they work in their surroundings. I'm interested in how they react to a room.
I don't intentionally make my films with the express goal of surprising the viewer.
I have a very high tolerance for gore and blood. I am, like, the perfect horror movie viewer because I do not get scared very easily. I can really stomach anything so, as a result, I have watched a lot of really disgusting stuff that I should probably never have seen.
I like movies that instill passion in the viewer. I like movies that can teach us about who we are as people.
As a viewer, my own work elicits strong emotional reaction from me.
Hollywood films are alienating to the spectator because they use too much dialogue, too much explication and leave no space for the viewer. They depress me.
What I aspire to is to have the viewer look directly at the subject, as if they're looking through a window at the real thing.
I think by laying it out for the viewer I'm avoiding the issue of bias.
My goal is to make the viewer a little bit smarter.
I think you always have to find where the boundary is in relation to the context in order to be able to kind of articulate how you want the space to interact with the viewer.
