“I think audiences get too comfortable and familiar in today's movies. They believe everything they're hearing and seeing. I like to shake that up.”
“I know that feeling of looking back and thinking, that part I'd like to fix. So I obsessively try not to compromise.”
“Juxtaposing a person with an environment that is boundless, collating him with a countless number of people passing by close to him and far away, relating a person to the whole world, that is the meaning of cinema.”
“What is an artist? A provincial who finds himself somewhere between a physical reality and a metaphysical one...”
“Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.”
“A story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end... but not necessarily in that order. ”
“I don't think about technique. The ideas dictate everything. You have to be true to that or you're dead.”
“In my childhood, America was like a religion. Then, real-life Americans abruptly entered my life in jeeps and upset all my dreams.”
“Cinema is a matter of what's in the frame and what's out.”
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.”
Paul Thomas Anderson
“I'll rebel against powers and principalities, all the time. Always, I will.”
“I don't believe in elitism. I don't think the audience is this dumb person lower than me. I am the audience.”
