“I believe you have to be born a director. It’s like a child’s adventure: you take the initiative among other children and become a director, creating a mystery. You mould things into shape and create.”
“For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake.”
“A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet.”
“If you're going to tell people the truth, be funny or they'll kill you.”
“I hate the cinema. But I like making westerns.”
“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.”
“Dance expresses joy better than anything else.”
“My distinguishing talent is the ability to put people under the microscope, perhaps to go one or two layers farther down than some other directors.”
“What is an artist? A provincial who finds himself somewhere between a physical reality and a metaphysical one...”
“For me directing is like having sex: when it’s good, it’s very good; but when it’s bad, it’s still good.”
“If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed.”
“A story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end... but not necessarily in that order. ”
