So much of movie acting is in the lighting. And in loving your characters. I try to know them, and with that intimacy comes love. And now, I love Voldemort.
And I always had this idea for making a movie about a femme fatale, because I like these characters. They're a lot of fun, they're sexy, they're manipulative, they're dangerous.
Brian De Palma
You read a script and its based on 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction', and it goes right in the bin.
I like the idea of movies having a magic element. How many times have you seen an actor in a movie who you know only as the character? It's wonderful, isn't it?
Movies are not scripts - movies are films; they're not books, they're not the theatre.
Movie magic is movie magic and acting magic is acting magic.
I was obsessed with romance. When I was in high school, I saw 'Doctor Zhivago' every day from the day it opened until the day it left the theater.
I'm married to the theater but my mistress is the films.
Movies are a complicated collision of literature, theatre, music and all the visual arts.
It's the story that counts.
People know that I have a great love for cinema. Not just for commercial cinema, but for the 'cinema d'auteur.' But to me, two of the great 'auteurs' are actually actors and they both happen to be French. One is Alain Delon and the other is Jean-Paul Belmondo.
I made over forty Westerns. I used to lie awake nights trying to think up new ways of getting on and off a horse.
You won't find me in a romantic comedy. Those movies don't speak to me. People don't come to talk to me about those scripts, because they probably think I'm this dark, twisted, miserable person.
In the next couple of years, part of every film's process is going to be to adjust the images. And it'll be to change the color of an actor's tie or change the little smirky thing he's doing with his mouth. Or you can put in more clouds or move the tree a little bit.
I don't storyboard. I guess it dates back to my days in live television, where there was no possibility of storyboarding and everything was shot right on the spot - on the air, as we say - at the moment we were transmitting. I prefer to be open to what the actors do, how they interact to the given situation.
The best reason to go to the movies is to be with other people. Eating the popcorn, being with other people you don't know.
Go see it and see for yourself why you shouldn't go see it.
I never enjoyed working in a film.
You can map your life through your favorite movies, and no two people's maps will be the same.
I do believe that movies are subject to a million interpretations.
I didn't have any ambition to produce big mainstream popcorn movies.
I think a sequel is a waste of money and time. I think movies should illuminate new stories.
Francis Ford Coppola
Every time I make a picture the critics' estimate of American public taste goes down ten percent.
Cecil B. DeMille
If you don't like my movies, don't watch them.
Sometimes in movies, I still have to be the hero, but it's not all that important to me anymore.
I learned what I really love is making films, not the film business. I want to be on the set, meeting with writers, I want that freedom. I love it now.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

God is an unutterable sigh, planted in the depths of the soul.
