And in movies you must be a gambler. To produce films is to gamble.
I make movies I want to see.
Hitchcock had a charm about him. He was very funny at times. He was incredibly brilliant in his field of suspense.
I've made 122 movies, and I daresay there's a picture of mine showing somewhere in the world every day.
Movies are an art form that is very available to the masses.
'Home Alone' was a movie, not an alibi.
'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington' is one of the greatest films of all time.
Nobody makes movies bad on purpose.
When you make a film you usually make a film about an idea.
Every single art form is involved in film, in a way.
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.
It is painful to watch children trying to show off for parents who are engrossed in their cell phones. Children are nostalgic for the 'good old days' when parents used to read to them without the cell phone by their side or watch football games or Disney movies without having the BlackBerry handy.
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.
I've been around a long time, and when I was at the top of the hill, I was very ahead of my time! Evidence of that is that my music is still current today - you know, rappers sample it all the time. So, rather than compromise my artistic integrity, I concentrated on movies.
Life is more than sunglasses and hit movies. Reality - that's the main event.
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.
I never was that boy who loved gangster films, but when I was growing up, I was obsessed with the detective Dick Tracy. It was one of my favourite movies as a kid, and he really inspired me. I would have loved to be part of that golden age of Hollywood in the 1940s. It made me want to become an actor.
I don't care about movies. I tend to play badminton once a week.
Movies are my religion and God is my patron. I'm lucky enough to be in the position where I don't make movies to pay for my pool. When I make a movie, I want it to be everything to me; like I would die for it.
I have loved movies as the number one thing in my life so long that I can't ever remember a time when I didn't.
I want to turn my attention to movies about love relationships. Exploring the female psyche - there ought to be some interesting discoveries there. Love stories. If you do it right, people want to hear romantic dialog.
With 'Black Rain,' I spent a lot of time with homicide detectives, and I spent a lot of time with different brokers on 'Wall Street.' It helps get the rhythm of the piece and the tone, and how overplayed or underplayed it might be. That's also the magic of movies: You get to hang out and live these different lives.
People are always talking about the old days. They say that the old movies were better, that the old actors were so great. But I don't think so. All I can say about the old days is that they have passed.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci

Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.
