“To me the director's job is to leave it in better shape than you found it, literally.”
“Anybody who comes to the cinema is bringing their whole sexual history, their literary history, their movie literacy, their culture, their language, their religion, whatever they've got. I can't possibly manipulate all of that, nor do I want to.”
“I know that feeling of looking back and thinking, that part I'd like to fix. So I obsessively try not to compromise.”
Paul Thomas Anderson
“I'll rebel against powers and principalities, all the time. Always, I will.”
“It is my duty to direct because the films might be the inner chronicle of what we are, and we have to articulate ourselves. Otherwise we would be cows in the field.”
“The proper route to an understanding of the world is an examination of our errors about it.”
“For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake.”
“I don't believe in elitism. I don't think the audience is this dumb person lower than me. I am the audience.”
“No matter where you’re going it’s the wrong place.”
“In France, I'm an auteur; in Germany, a filmmaker; in Britain, a genre film director; and, in the USA, a bum.”
