There's an electrical thing about movies.
I was going to go to a four-year college and be an anthropologist or to an art school and be an illustrator when a friend convinced me to learn photography at the University of Southern California. Little did I know it was a school that taught you how to make movies! It had never occurred to me that I'd ever have any interest in filmmaking.
Horror movies are the best date movies. There's no wondering, 'When do I put my arm around her?'
I am a cynical optimist. Big opening weekends are like cotton candy. The films you will remember over time are the films that stick in the consciousness of the audience in a good way.
A cinema villain essentially needs a moustache so he can twiddle with it gleefully as he cooks up his next nasty plan.
I don't think you should feel about a film. You should feel about a woman, not a movie. You can't kiss a movie.
The great art of films does not consist of descriptive movement of face and body but in the movements of thought and soul transmitted in a kind of intense isolation.
When people ask me if I went to film school I tell them, 'no, I went to films.'
Film spectators are quiet vampires.
I have a love interest in every one of my films: a gun.
Even if I set out to make a film about a fillet of sole, it would be about me.
Movies are something people see all over the world because there is a certain need for it.
The secret to film is that it's an illusion.
I just like movies that somehow expose the world in a way that's different than you imagine it.
The difference between life and the movies is that a script has to make sense, and life doesn't.
Joseph L. Mankiewicz
Film lovers are sick people.
Acting is not about being famous, it's about exploring the human soul.
Filmmaking is a completely imperfect art form that takes years and, over those years, the movie tells you what it is. Mistakes happen, accidents happen and true great films are the results of those mistakes and the decisions that those directors make during those moments.
Every great film should seem new every time you see it.
I think cinema, movies, and magic have always been closely associated. The very earliest people who made film were magicians.
Francis Ford Coppola
If you're sitting in your minivan, playing your computer animated films for your children in the back seat, is it the animation that's entertaining you as you drive and listen? No, it's the storytelling. That's why we put so much importance on story. No amount of great animation will save a bad story.
A filmmaker has almost the same freedom as a novelist has when he buys himself some paper.
Citizen Kane is perhaps the one American talking picture that seems as fresh now as the day it opened. It may seem even fresher.
The directing of a picture involves coming out of your individual loneliness and taking a controlling part in putting together a small world. A picture is made. You put a frame around it and move on. And one day you die. That is all there is to it.
I thought Star Wars was too wacky for the general public.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
