Fritz Lang

“I should say that I was a visual person. I experience with my eyes and never, or rarely, with my ears...to my constant regret.”

 
W120

Richard Lester

“Film-making has become a kind of hysterical pregnancy.”

 
W120

Paul Schrader

“What fascinates me are people who want to be one thing but who behave in a way contradictory to that. Who might say, ‘I want to be happy, but I keep doing things that make me unhappy.”

 
W120

Tobe Hooper

“No matter where you’re going it’s the wrong place.”

 
W120

Ken Russell

“Life is too short to make destructive films about people one doesn’t like. My films are meant to be constructive and illuminating.”

 
W120

Miloš Forman

“The worst evil is - and that's the product of censorship - is the self-censorship, because that twists spines, that destroys my character because I have to think something else and say something else, I have to always control myself.”

 
W120

Tim Burton

“I've always loved the idea of fairy tales, but somehow I never managed to completely connect with them. What interests me is taking those classic images and themes and trying to contemporize them a bit. I believe folk tales and fairy tales have some sort of psychological foundation that makes that possible.”

 
W120

Robert Aldrich

“A director is a ringmaster, a psychiatrist and a referee.”

 
W120

Roy Ward Baker

“I've always lacked one of the qualities that a film director should have, and that's the sense of intense curiosity in other people's business. If you invited Fellini to a party, he'd get a drink and sit in the corner watching everybody else and making notes.”

 
W120

John Huston

“The directing of a picture involves coming out of your individual loneliness and taking a controlling part in putting together a small world. A picture is made. You put a frame around it and move on.”

 
W120

Jack Hill

“I liked the Warner Bros. movies of the forties. That’s my main influence. The noirs and the gangster films.”

 
W120

Hal Ashby

“I was a kid looking for something but I didn’t know what. The movie business seemed like a terrific thing to get into, because that’s where the money and the fun was at.”

 
W120

Costa-Gavras

“My mother used to say ‘stay away from politics’, because my father went to prison. But if you reject politics, you reject a lot of relationships. The worst thing in society is individualism.”

 
W120

Wes Anderson

“I know that feeling of looking back and thinking, that part I'd like to fix. So I obsessively try not to compromise.”

 
W120

Robert Altman

“Filmmaking is a chance to live many lifetimes.”

 
W120

Billy Wilder

“If you're going to tell people the truth, be funny or they'll kill you.”

 
W120

Frank Tashlin

“I got into a fight with Walt Disney: I always pick the wrong people to fight with.”

 
W120

Elaine May

“The only thing experience teaches you is what you can't do. When you start, you think you can do anything. And then you start to get a little tired.”

 
W120

John Frankenheimer

“I feel that my job is to create an atmosphere where creative people can do their best work. In other words, I have to create an atmosphere where these people feel safe, where they feel respected, and where they feel that they can contribute.”

 
W120

Arthur Penn

“Life is like nothing I’ve ever seen.”
