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
Charlie Chaplin and I would have a friendly contest: Who could do the feature Film with the least subtitles?buster keaton
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
Live Freaky! Die Freaky! will be, without a shadow of a doubt, the single greatest Film of all time about Charles Manson being the savior to all humanity in the year 3069.
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
I could start this review by stating that Dumb and Dumberer lives up to its name, or by calling it stupid, moronic, and idiotic, but I believe that approach is a trap, since a movie like this might relish being the object of such bland invectives. Instead, let me try a few that can't possibly be misconstrued as twisted praise: unfunny, boring, torturous, and unwatchable. ... [N]o movie could be more aptly compared to raw sewage than this Film - Directed By Troy Miller.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
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
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.
Yes, in the sense that the negative is like the composer’s score. Then, using that musical analogy, the print is the performance. (Paraphrased as " Film is the score and the print is the performance.")ansel adams
We had forgotten the art of using silence to convey emotions in our films and that's what you seem to have mastered. You've used silence to great advantage in the Film. It's brilliant.amitabh bachchan
I always figured that once I wrapped a Film, then anything beyond that is none of my business. If I can avoid seeing the final product, then all I have in my head is feeling good about the experience.johnny depp
A dense Film of a conventional surfactant is quite impermeable. On the other hand, a dense Film of Janus grains always has some interstices between the grains, and allows for chemical exchange between the two sides; "the skin can breathe". This may possibly be of some practical interest.pierre-gilles de gennes
Don't make a Film if it can't be the Film you want to make. It's a joke, and a sick joke, and it'll kill you.david lynch
The moment there’s a foreigner in a Film it gives a novelty to the script. We make regional films and we need to hype our films.arin paul
The Film needs to be slower and duller at the start so that the viewers who walked into the wrong theatre have time to leave before the main action startsandrei tarkovsky
This Film Phantom takes everything that's wrong with Broadway and puts it on the big screen in a gaudy splat.stephanie zacharek
With Batman & Robin , the fourth entry in the recent Batman movie series, the profitable franchise appears poised to take a nosedive. This Film, which places yet another actor in the batsuit, has all the necessary hallmarks of a sorry sequel pointless, plodding plotting; asinine action; clueless, comatose characterization; and dumb dialogue. ... Batman & Robin moves at a dizzying pace, yet goes absolutely nowhere.james berardinelli
For 40 years, I didn't miss a single deadline, but since July, I have missed every one. I also, to my intense disappointment, missed the Telluride and Toronto Film festivals. Having just written my first review since June ( The Queen ), I think an update is in order.roger ebert
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
A wide screen just makes a bad Film twice as bad.
A successful Film not just because of the marriage of the right actor in the appropriate genre, but also the timely infusion of challenging questions about a nation at war.
