What we want is a story that starts with an earthquake and works its way up to a climax.
When I was a kid, we watched the Vietnam War on the six o'clock news, and it was desensitizing. You felt you were watching a war Film; meanwhile you were really watching these guys getting blown to bits. Parents need to protect their kids from watching that stuff.johnny depp
The only way it would work for me is if it was a full-length feature Film directed by Joss Whedon or Tim Minear or David Greenwalt.david boreanaz
Charlie Chaplin and I would have a friendly contest: Who could do the feature Film with the least subtitles?buster keaton
The Film begins with a visual list of eight and a half Japanese Pachinko Parlours filmed in several Japanese cities -- Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto. These buildings are just right for the excesses of post-modernism -- decorative, frivolous -- serving to obviously excite and attract -- every feature using the architectural vocabulary freely without too much regard for serious function -- open glass atriums and shining metals and expensive and artificial marbles, zany letterings and excess neon. "Then I think you have a choice -- please your mother or face criminal charges." "To a man of honour that is no choice."Peter Greenaway
Film is the least realistic of art forms.
When you start you want to make the greatest Film in the world, but when you get into it, you just want to get it done, let it be passable and not embarrassing.
I did not make this Film about Frank Abagnale because of what he did . . but because of what he has done with his life the past 30 years.Steven Spielberg
I define Inner Space as an imaginary realm in which on the one hand the outer world of reality, and on the other the inner world of the mind meet and merge. Now, in the landscapes of the surrealist painters, for example, one sees the regions of Inner Space; and increasingly I believe that we will encounter in Film and literature scenes which are neither solely realistic nor fantastic. In a sense, it will be a movement in the interzone between both spheres.j. g. ballard
Die Hard represents the class of modern action pictures and the standard by which they must be judged. Few films falling into the "mindless entertainment" genre have as much going for them as this movie. Not only is it a thrill-a-minute ride, but it has one of the best Film villains in recent memory, a hero everyone can relate to, dialogue that crackles with wit, and a lot of very impressive pyrotechnics.james berardinelli
I liked Truffaut a lot, I've felt a lot of admiration for his way to address the audience, and his storytelling.... La nuit américaine is adorable, and another Film I like to see is L'enfant sauvage , with its fine humanism.ingmar bergman
Pearl Harbor is a two-hour movie squeezed into three hours, about how on December 7, 1941, the Japanese staged a surprise attack on an American love triangle. Its centerpiece is 40 minutes of redundant special effects, surrounded by a love story of stunning banality. The Film has been directed without grace, vision, or originality, and although you may walk out quoting lines of dialog, it will not be because you admire them.roger ebert
The public has yet to see TV as TV. Broadcasters have no awareness of its potential. The movie people are just beginning to get a grasp on Film.Marshall McLuhan
In the theater, while you recognized that you were looking at a house, it was a house in quotation marks ... on screen, the quotation marks tend to be blotted out by the camera. The problem was to sustain at any cost the feeling you had in the theater that you were watching a real person, yes, but an intense condensation of his experience, not simply a realistic series of episodes. It isn't easy to do in the theater, but it's twice as hard in Film.Arthur Miller
A filmmaker should never assume he's superior to his subject. I often find that even the simplest topic remains an enigma. The best Film portraits not only evoke that enigma but ingest it in a process that renders what's invisible visible.damian pettigrew
The Film is about what happens when real people do ghastly things to each other, and sure, it shows those things because that's the tone of the Film fairly realistic.
I wish I would have had more to do in the Film. I hated to get killed so soon.bruce bennett
I will better the Film, [Honking car horn] For the good, [Honking car horn] Of the Film.brandon dicamillo
The Arts, especially Film, transcend all cultural barriers, hopefully offering an avenue where all people can find a common place to meet, understand each other, and nurture a safe world for all our children to grow strong within.carson grant
Roecker seems to have been as inspired by Todd Haynes's legendary underground Film "Superstar" -- in which he told Karen Carpenter's life story with surprising tenderness using Barbie dolls and a bootlegged soundtrack -- as by the stop-motion animation of Ray Harryhausen and the "Frosty the Snowman" cartoon.john roecker
I had a hard time watching Wolf Creek. It is a Film with one clear purpose: To establish the commercial credentials of its director by showing his skill at depicting the brutal tracking, torture and mutilation of screaming young women. When the killer severs the spine of one of his victims and calls her "a head on a stick," I wanted to walk out of the theater and keep on walking.roger ebert
The beautiful Monique insists on joining their expedition and cannot be dissuaded; we think at first she has a nefarious motive, but no, she's probably taken a class in screenplay construction and knows that the Film requires a sexy female lead. This could be the first case in cinematic history of a character voluntarily entering a movie because of the objective fact that she is required.roger ebert
I’ve directed a fair amount of stuff in the past, such as music videos, commercials and short films and I believe that the best way to learn in this industry – I mean, you can go to Film school and that’s good – but ultimately, the only way you’re ever going to learn is through raw experience.
The fashion world is much more ephemeral than the Film industry and moves at a faster pace, and it's got even more frenetic since the Nineties; more paparazzi hanging about and it seems to me there are even more fashion magazines.
