David Mamet

“A good film script should be able to do completely without dialogue. ”

 
W120

Dario Argento

“The process of writing and directing drives you to such extremes that it’s natural to feel an affinity with insanity. I approach that madness as something dangerous and I’m afraid, but also I want to go to it, to see what’s there, to embrace it. I don’t know why but I’m drawn.”

Paul Thomas Anderson

“I'll rebel against powers and principalities, all the time. Always, I will.”

 
W120

Sam Raimi

“I look at myself as an entertainer, more than anything else. I wanted to make the movie a little more different than the previous films… That was less about me growing as a craftsman. That was more about me trying to provide an element to the audience that I thought they might need something different, that came from a different place.”

 
W120

Steven Soderbergh

“To me the director's job is to leave it in better shape than you found it, literally.”

 
W120

Pedro Almodóvar

“I also wanted to express the strength of cinema to hide reality, while being entertaining. Cinema can fill in the empty spaces of your life and your loneliness.”

 
W120

David Fincher

“I don't know how much movies should entertain. To me I'm always interested in movies that scar. The thing I love about JAWS is that I've never gone swimming in the ocean again.”

 
W120

John Hughes

“I was obsessed with romance. When I was in high school, I saw Doctor Zhivago every day from the day it opened until the day it left the theater.”

 
W120

Albert Brooks

“When I die, if the word ‘thong’ appears in the first or second sentence of my obituary, I’ve screwed up.”

 
W120

Stanley Kubrick

“If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed.”

 
W120

Mike Mills

“Making a movie is so hard, you'd better make movies about something you really know about. And even more, it's really good to make movies about things you need to figure out for yourself, so you're driven the whole way through. It's going to make things more crucial for you.”

 
W120

Martin Scorsese

“Cinema is a matter of what's in the frame and what's out.”

 
W120

Hal Hartley

“Despite the fact that I love story, character and dialogue, when I isolate the primary elements of film I find photography, movement and sound recording — in that order. Only then do I consider dramatic action. Film is essentially graphic for me.”

 
W120

Guillermo del Toro

“I like actors that are good with pantomime and that can transmit a lot by their presence and attitude more than through their dialogue.”

 
W120

Christopher Guest

“Comedy is like music. You have to know the key and you have to find players with good chops.”

 
W120

Jonathan Demme

“I only work with actors who take full responsibility for their characters. ”

 
W120

François Ozon

“I think cinema has to deal with desire. In the cinema, you are with a big screen, it is dark, and you watch some images, like a fantasy, so I think it is important for you to feel desire for what you see.”

 
W120

Ethan Coen

“We create monsters and then we can't control them. ”

 
W120

Joel Coen

“The characters are the result of two things-first, we elaborate them into fairly well-defined people through their dialogue, then they happen all over again, when the actor interprets them. ”
