“I don't think about technique. The ideas dictate everything. You have to be true to that or you're dead.”
“I cannot just make a film and walk away from it. I need that creative intimacy, and quite frankly, the control to execute my visions, on all my projects.”
“For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake.”
“Movie directors, or should I say people who create things, are very greedy and they can never be satisfied...that's why they can keep on working. I've been able to work for so long because I think next time, I'll make something good.”
“A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet.”
“I consider my films first and foremost to be dramas about individuals in personal struggles and I consider myself to be a dramatist before I am a political filmmaker.”
“If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed.”
