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.
Film is not the art of scholars, but illiterates.
A director makes only one Film in his life. Then he breaks it into pieces and makes it again.Jean Renoir
To be honest, I haven't even seen the Film yet. Tobey, if you're reading this, I apologize.eliza dushku
I am not a nationalist, I am a Wolfe Tone Republican. In pursuit of that ideal I have been forced to continually shift positions, much like a man in a cinema who keeps changing his seat, but only so he can get a clean view of the same Film. And the title of the Film, of which I never tire, is The Future Irish Republic.eoghan harris
I’ve always maintained that it’s easy to make a Film on Adolf Hitler. What is difficult is to find out why he struck a chord with the German people; what is the nature of fear, aspiration and identity that he evoked in them that it became Hitler’s Germany.saeed akhtar mirza
I don't think there is any difference between fantasy and reality in the way these should be approached in a Film. Of course if you live that way you are clinically insane.martin scorsese
Michael made his debut in John Carpenter's 1978 horror classic, Halloween , possibly the best scare movie to come along in the last twenty-five years. ... [W]ith the release of the sixth (and hopefully final) movie to bear the Halloween moniker, we see how far the mighty have fallen. ... In the final analysis, The Curse of Michael Myers is a horrific motion picture just not in the way the Film makers intended - Directed By Joe Chappelle.james berardinelli
Of course, fairies are all imported in North America. We have no native fairies. The Little People do not long survive importation unless they go to California and grow large and beautiful, but haven't much flavour, like the fruit and the Film stars.Robertson Davies
The R rating refers to Logue's use of vulgarity. It is utterly inexplicable. This is an excellent Film for teenagers.roger ebert
I want to thank all the right-wing organizations out there who tried to stop the Film, either from their harassment campaign that didn't work on the theatre owners, or going to the FEC to get our ads removed from television, to all the things that have been said on television. It's only encouraged more people to go and see it. We are happy to announce that the efforts of the small-minded few have failed miserably.Michael Moore
Psychotic gunmen no longer seem to have any motive beyond a general anger. James Holmes appears to have shot dead 12 people in Colorado's Aurora cinema in July simply because they were watching a Batman Film and he saw himself as the Joker. And Adam Lanza| has no link with the school he attacked last week, apart from having once attended it as a little boy.
