"But an industry made up of ever-more epic thrill rides at one end and small-scale art movies at the other, with nothing in between, is going to have a lot of difficulty maintaining the kind of infrastructure that will make either option viable." (Nick Roddick, Sight & Sound/April 2010)
"Reality is neither the subject nor the object of true art which creates its own special reality having nothing to do with the average 'reality' perceived by the communal eye." (Vladimir Nabokov)
"Immorality may be fun, but it isn't fun enough to take the place of one hundred percent virtue and three square meals a day."
(Design for Living, 1933)
"A film is only real in the way that memory is real. And images enter your memory not because they’re realistic, but because they’re memorable."
