“If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed.”
“I don't think about technique. The ideas dictate everything. You have to be true to that or you're dead.”
“Every time, I try to make something different. ”
“The first monster you have to scare the audience with is yourself.”
“They're just actors. I much prefer the real thing!”
“There are lots of different ways to make film. I don’t believe there has to be any orthodox way to making movies, or any rules. It’s what works for the filmmaker, and, theoretically, the audience.”
“Every film is manipulative, raping the viewer. So the question is: Why do I rape the viewer?”
“Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.”
“Hollywood is like being nowhere and talking to nobody about nothing.”
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.”
Rainer Werner Fassbinder
“It isn't easy to accept that suffering can also be beautiful...it's difficult. It's something you can only understand if you dig deeply into yourself.”
