“I don't act anyway. The stuff is all injected as we go along. My pictures are made without script or written directions of any kind.”
“Emotion resulting from a work of art is only of value when it is not obtained by sentimental blackmail. ”
“A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet.”
“What is an artist? A provincial who finds himself somewhere between a physical reality and a metaphysical one...”
“Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.”
“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.”
“Comedy just pokes at problems, rarely confronts them squarely. Drama is like a plate of meat and potatoes, comedy is rather the dessert, a bit like meringue.”
“Maybe it is worth investigating the unknown, if only because the very feeling of not knowing is a painful one.”
“I don't think about technique. The ideas dictate everything. You have to be true to that or you're dead.”
“At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since.”
“I'm always in search of special nonrealistic language that has musicality. ”
“To me, watching a movie is like going to an amusement park. My worst fear is making a film that people don't think is a good ride.”
“For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake.”
“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.”
“If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed.”
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.”
