If you don't like my movies, don't watch them.
I've made 122 movies, and I daresay there's a picture of mine showing somewhere in the world every day.
Hitchcock had a charm about him. He was very funny at times. He was incredibly brilliant in his field of suspense.
I make movies I want to see.
And in movies you must be a gambler. To produce films is to gamble.
Every time I make a picture the critics' estimate of American public taste goes down ten percent.
Cecil B. DeMille
'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington' is one of the greatest films of all time.
Every single art form is involved in film, in a way.
When you make a film you usually make a film about an idea.
'Home Alone' was a movie, not an alibi.
Movies are an art form that is very available to the masses.
We are the movies and the movies are us.
Nobody makes movies bad on purpose.
I think you kind of hope for people to gush over movies, but I think the opposite way is great sometimes, too. I'd rather have a movie that you're angry about and that you're talking about the next day, than something you forget about when the popcorn goes into the trash.
So I like to try to go back and develop pure visual storytelling. Because to me, it's one of the most exciting aspects of making movies and almost a lost art at this point.
Brian De Palma
Everybody's a filmmaker today.
Well, the wonderful thing about making movies, oddly enough, is that they're sort of highly motivated graduate studies in one or another field.
I like to go out if there's a party or go to the movies, but I just like hanging out with my buddies and having a good time.
Nothing to me is unexpected. No disappointment is unexpected - whether it's movies or people or relationships. I'm always ready for the punch directly between the eyes. So I get hurt, but I never get hurt. Happens all the time.
Sometimes over things that I did, movies that didn't turn out very well - you go, 'Why did you do that?' But in the end, I can't regret them because I met amazing people. There was always something that was worth it.
I wanted to escape Small Town U.S.A. To dismiss the boundaries, to explore. My life experience came from watching movies, TV, and reading books and magazines. When your culture comes from watching TV everyday, you're bombarded with images of things that seem cool, places that seem interesting, people who have jobs and careers and opportunities.
Sexiness, particularly in movies, is the chess game in the 'Thomas Crown Affair'. It's, it's, I don't know, but Faye Dunaway comes up a lot in that thinking. It's the subtlety of sexiness. The moment you try to be sexy, then it's not.
'Tropic Thunder' is one of my favorite movies of all time. 'Blazing Saddles.' Anything that will get me to smile.
I never expected anyone to take care of me, but in my wildest dreams and juvenile yearnings, I wanted the house with the picket fence from June Allyson movies. I knew that was yearning like one yearns to fly.
Life is more than sunglasses and hit movies. Reality - that's the main event.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
C. S. Lewis
