Film Quotations

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
Aaron Siskind

A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
Stanley Kubrick

My goal has always been not to look forward to the next thing, but to relish and celebrate the successes I have at the moment. Whether it's landing a part in a student film or having a good day in acting class, I never discredit anything.
Dianna Agron

A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet.
Orson Welles

A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.
Alfred Hitchcock
