“If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed.”
“I constantly try to reinvent my sensibilities and my ideas. I enjoy some of the satisfaction that I get when I feel good about what I've done. But the process is quite lonely and quite painful.”
“When I was a child the temptation to sin was always a romantic option. This romantic option lead me to the cinema, a place where sin was welcome.”
“I don't think about technique. The ideas dictate everything. You have to be true to that or you're dead.”
“You get trapped by stories. Though I've got this reputation for being out of control, it's not true, it just happens to be a more interesting story than the truth.”
“I've found that film-making's not just a job, it becomes part of your whole life.”
“Cinema is a matter of what's in the frame and what's out.”
“I also wanted to express the strength of cinema to hide reality, while being entertaining. Cinema can fill in the empty spaces of your life and your loneliness.”
Lars von Trier
“I think it's important that we all try to give something to this medium, instead of just thinking about what is the most efficient way of telling a story or making an audience stay in a cinema.”
“Some call me director, producer, filmmaker. I prefer to call myself pube-king.”
“Most directors make films with their eyes; I make films with my testicles.”
