Spike Lee

“I think it would be very boring dramatically to have a film where everybody was a lawyer or doctor and had no faults. To me, the most important thing is to be truthful.”

 
W120

Takashi Miike

“I don't think about the audience, I don't think about what makes them happy, because there's no way for me to know. They think of the audience as a mass, but in fact every person in the audience is different. So entertainment for everyone doesn't exist.”

 
W120

Ivan Reitman

“I don't think my sense of humor has changed at all; I was born with this, for better or for worse. ”

 
W120

Kim Ki-duk

“I always ask myself one question: what is human? What does it mean to be human? Maybe people will consider my new films brutal again. But this violence is just a reflection of what they really are, of what is in each one of us to certain degree.”

Bill Douglas

“I was always somewhat obsessed with my past.”

 
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

Robert Zemeckis

“No matter how many obstacles that are thrown in our path, there are ways to except them and to live through them.”

 
W120

Alejandro González Iñárritu

“(On why did he not record an audio commentary for 21 Grams) I don't like them. I feel that if you have to explain something it loses strength. It's like a magician trying to explain his magic, in a way.”

 
W120

Christophe Gans

“It is important to consider that the horror movies should - like modern art - not have a too obvious meaning. When you watch them it is more important what you feel than what you understand.”

 
W120

Hollis Frampton

“This whole business of words – the whole sense of tense and complicated problems about knowledge, about making things in relation to all the things that were already made with words – seems to have fallen into film.”

 
W120

M. Night Shyamalan

“I feel most akin as an artist, in my life and my career, to Agatha Christie. I get where she was coming from, making 80 stories about a point of view. I want at the end of the day to have 50 or 60 stories that came out of my head. Some will hit the mainstream and some won’t, but they’ll all be about human beings, and the analysis of human beings. So she’s my hero.”

 
W120

Christopher Guest

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

 
W120

Kathryn Bigelow

“I've spent a fair amount of time thinking about what my aptitude is, and I really think it's to explore and push the medium. It's not about breaking gender roles or genre traditions.”

 
W120

Jackie Chan

“Don't try to be like Jackie. There is only one Jackie. Study computers instead.”

 
W120

William Friedkin

“By the time a film of mine makes it into the theaters, I have a love-hate relationship with it. There is always something I could have done to make it better.”

 
W120

Michael Moore

“White people scare the crap out of me. ”

 
W120

Vittorio De Sica

“I've lost all my money on these films. They are not commercial. But I'm glad to lose it this way. To have for a souvenir of my life pictures like Umberto D. and The Bicycle Thief.”

 
W120

Jonathan Demme

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

 
W120

Robert Towne

“Of course I'm respectable. I'm old. Politicians, ugly buildings, and whores all get respectable if they last long enough.”
