Cinema quotes by Mick LaSalle
#1. FRENCH CINEMA IS SO RICH in opportunities for actresses of talent that a career needn't build quickly, with a few star-making turns. It can build slowly, over the course of years. An actress can make the most of ensemble and supporting parts, grow in popularity, grow in ability and ultimately find herself, some ten years down the line, in possession of a major career. #Quote by Mick LaSalle
Cinema quotes by Abbas Kiarostami
#2. Those same people, when they leave the theater, when they look behind the curtains they are curious about their neighbors, they can guess if their neighbors are siblings or a couple, how old they are, what their occupation is. They are curious about each other and they can understand each other without being fed information. Why should it be different in cinema? #Quote by Abbas Kiarostami
Cinema quotes by Harmony Korine
#3. It's hard to say things without coming off in a certain way, but at a young age, I felt very driven. All I ever wanted to be is a soldier of cinema. #Quote by Harmony Korine
Cinema quotes by Francois Truffaut
#4. There are two kinds of directors; those who have the public in mind when they conceive and make their films and those who don't consider the public at all. For the former, cinema is an art of spectacle; for the latter, it is an individual adventure. There is nothing intrinsically better about one or the other; it's simply a matter of different approaches. For Hitchcock as for Renoir, as for that matter almost all American directors, a film has not succeeded unless it is a success, that is, unless it touches the public that one has had in mind right from the moment of choosing the subject matter to the end of production. While Bresson, Tati, Rossellini, Ray make films their own way and then invite the public to join the "game," Renoir, Clouzot, Hitchcock and Hawks make movies for the public, and ask themselves all the questions they think will interest their audience. Alfred Hitchcock, who is a remarkably intelligent man, formed the habit early--right from the start of his career in England--of predicting each aspect of his films. All his life he has worked to make his own tastes coincide with the public', emphasizing humor in his English period and suspense in his American period. This dosage of humor and suspense has made Hitchcock one of the most commercial directors in the world (his films regularly bring in four times what they cost). It is the strict demands he makes on himself and on his art that have made him a great director. #Quote by Francois Truffaut
Cinema quotes by Richard Ayoade
#5. Heroes hate wasting time. 'You're wasting my time,' they'll say. Yet they devote very little time to time management, and rarely consult a diary. #Quote by Richard Ayoade
Cinema quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#6. A movie is something you see, cinema is something that's made. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Cinema quotes by Italo Calvino
#7. The close-up has no equivalent in a narrative fashioned of words. Literature is totally lacking in any working method to enable it to isolate a single vastly enlarged detail in which one face comes forward to underline a state of mind or stress the importance of a single detail in comparison with the rest. As a narrative device, the ability to vary the distance between the camera and the object may be a small thing indeed, but it makes for a notable difference between cinema and oral or written narrative, in which the distance between language and image is always the same. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Cinema quotes by Sonakshi Sinha
#8. My opinion is that you cannot really blame cinema for the result of what is somebody's mindset. I think it's just entertainment. For me, I've always believed in doing things that I can sit and watch with my family. So far I think I've stuck to that, and I will also in the future. #Quote by Sonakshi Sinha
Cinema quotes by Spike Lee
#9. Any film I do is not going to change the way black women have been portrayed, or black people have been portrayed, in cinema since the days of D.W. Griffith. #Quote by Spike Lee
Cinema quotes by Angela Panayotopulos
#10. Hell and Heaven are states of being, not destinations. They are worlds we carry within. Don't expect to find angels and demons -- not in the way you've envisioned them. As God is called Allah, so Man is called Monster. Don't be fooled by titles. Call a skunk a rose and it will continue to reek.

Hydras do not crawl out from between the weatherworn pages of fairytale anthologies. On the contrary, they ride the subway and order food at the local drive-through and enjoy stolen kisses at the cinema. Only one head is visible to the naked eye. They tend to avoid reflective surfaces.

Each head is a sin: each belch of fire is a sin put to action. But you should know that the shadows differ. There may be seven heads, or three, or one. Those with one head are particularly tricky. Who's to say if they're human or hydra? You'd have to kiss them, bite them. You would know them by their mouth. The name of their sin is tattooed on the inside of their bottom lip, so they can lick and taste its sweetness. #Quote by Angela Panayotopulos
Cinema quotes by Bruno Dumont
#11. Cinema builds memories; great films continue to exist in the spectator's mind. We are naturally capable of and prone to nostalgia. A spectator will reconstruct a film he or she has seen, years later, and may even change their original opinion. One critic, for example, once gave the finger to one of my films; later he wrote me to apologize. #Quote by Bruno Dumont
Cinema quotes by Rob Nilsson
#12. Much to my chagrin, I think that cinema has gone the wrong way in America because in many ways, I pioneered the use of video which eventually became digital video. Everyone can do it; it's Pop Art time: "Everything is art, why should you take it so seriously, after all it's kind of like a clambake." I don't buy that. #Quote by Rob Nilsson
Cinema quotes by Kiefer Sutherland
#13. If you're going to break cinema, film, and movies apart, very rarely to you get the opportunity to even think that you've been a part of cinema. #Quote by Kiefer Sutherland
Cinema quotes by Serge Daney
#14. A cinephile is someone who expects too much of cinema. #Quote by Serge Daney
Cinema quotes by Andrei Tarkovsky
#15. MANY MANAGE TO SEPARATE THEIR LIFE FROM THEIR FILMS. THEY LIVE ONE WAY AND EXPRESS OTHER IDEAS IN THEIR WORKS. THEY ARE ABLE TO SPLIT THEIR CONSCIENCE. I CAN'T. TO ME CINEMA IS NOT JUST MY JOB: IT'S MY LIFE, AND EACH FILM IS AN ACT OF MY LIFE. #Quote by Andrei Tarkovsky
Cinema quotes by Susanne Katherina Langer
#16. Cinema is like dream. #Quote by Susanne Katherina Langer
Cinema quotes by Werner Herzog
#17. In my films, I hope there are a few moments where you feel almost illuminated, like in a state of ecstasy, stepping out of yourself, beyond yourself and perceiving something which is only, in the case of cinema, possible in collective dreams. #Quote by Werner Herzog
Cinema quotes by Luke Evans
#18. In the future, I would like to do more films with contemporary themes. Perhaps comedy, which is something I have done in theater but not in cinema. #Quote by Luke Evans
Cinema quotes by Cecil B. DeMille
#19. I might have remembered what my father once wrote to Henry George, I never do anything by halves, and am half hearted in no cause that I embrace. #Quote by Cecil B. DeMille
Cinema quotes by John Cameron Mitchell
#20. It's just odd that something as essential in life as sex has been flattened out in mainstream cinema - and in art cinema. Even in art movies, sex always seems to be treated negatively. Why does it always end in disaster? #Quote by John Cameron Mitchell
Cinema quotes by John Berger
#21. Compare the cinema with theatre. Both are dramatic arts. Theatre brings actors before a public and every night during the season they re-enact the same drama. Deep in the nature of theatre is a sense of ritual. The cinema, by contrast, transports its audience individually, singly, out of the theatre towards the unknown. #Quote by John Berger
Cinema quotes by Ben Dreyfuss
#22. American films are the best films. This is a fact. Cinema is - along with Jazz - the great American art form. And cinema in a very real sense created the American identity that has been exported around the world. #Quote by Ben Dreyfuss
Cinema quotes by Martin Scorsese
#23. We can't keep thinking in a limited way about what cinema is. We still don't know what cinema is. Maybe cinema could only really apply to the past or the first 100 years, when people actually went to a theater to see a film, you see? #Quote by Martin Scorsese
Cinema quotes by Kate Del Castillo
#24. What the rest of the world knows about Mexico is what they see on films and the bad news they see on TV. We need to make films that are worthy of who we really are as Mexicans. We also need to make cinema that reflects the diversity in the region, so that Americans and Europeans know who Mexicans are, who Salvadorians are, who Cubans are, etc. We need to do it, and all we really need is support because we have the talent. #Quote by Kate Del Castillo
Cinema quotes by C.S. Lewis
#25. Our experience is coloured through and through by books and plays and the cinema, and it takes patience and skill to disentangle the things we have really learned from life for ourselves. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Cinema quotes by Will Oldham
#26. A record is something that isn't real or true. It's like cinema. It's a construction of something hyper-real and surreal and unreal all at the same time. You make a space that doesn't really exist. One of the big joys of being in this line of work is building the recorded versions of the songs. #Quote by Will Oldham
Cinema quotes by Bruce Willis
#27. Cinema has no boundaries ... we all belong to the same artistic community. #Quote by Bruce Willis
Cinema quotes by Ted Sarandos
#28. On Friday night, if you want to go out on a date with your wife or your girlfriend, nothing on Netflix competes with that, right? Because you're getting out; that's what you're doing. If you don't want to put your shoes on, nothing in the cinema competes with the worst thing on Netflix. #Quote by Ted Sarandos
Cinema quotes by Tom Cruise
#29. I love adventure movies, I just love action adventure films. It's pure cinema and you go in and you're lost to it. To me, it's that challenge - I want to give an audience that ride, that entertainment. #Quote by Tom Cruise
Cinema quotes by Julian Huxley
#30. There are thus two tasks for the Mass Media division of Unesco, the one general, the other special. The special one is to enlist the press and the radio and the cinema to the fullest extent in the service of formal and adult education, of science and learning, of art and culture. The general one is to see that these agencies are used both to contribute to mutual comprehension between different nations and cultures, and also to promote the growth of a common outlook shared by all nations and cultures. #Quote by Julian Huxley
Cinema quotes by Salman Khan
#31. Cinema should always be in touch with the soil of the country. My films celebrate the heartland of India. #Quote by Salman Khan
Cinema quotes by Roger Zelazny
#32. Don't wake me for the end of the world unless it has very good special effects. #Quote by Roger Zelazny
Cinema quotes by Anurag Kashyap
#33. It was only in the early 1990s - during my student years as an aspiring scientist at Delhi University - that I discovered the world of cinema. #Quote by Anurag Kashyap
Cinema quotes by Jean-Luc Godard
#34. The cinema is truth 24 frames-per-second #Quote by Jean-Luc Godard
Cinema quotes by Toby Jones
#35. There is this miraculous thing I heard Hugh Grant talking about - the thing about screen acting is that you can read people's thoughts. You are trying to register something inside and usually the eyes in cinema are where you will register that. #Quote by Toby Jones
Cinema quotes by Andrei Tarkovsky
#36. Relating a person to the whole world: that is the meaning of cinema. #Quote by Andrei Tarkovsky
Cinema quotes by Ralph Fiennes
#37. I never studied anything about film technique in school. Eventually, I realized that cinema and theater are not so different: from the gut to the heart to the head of a character is the same journey for both. #Quote by Ralph Fiennes
Cinema quotes by Jean-Luc Godard
#38. All you need for a movie is a gun and a cat. #Quote by Jean-Luc Godard
Cinema quotes by Catherine Breillat
#39. I know why I make films -cinema is a mode of expression that allows you to express all the nuances of a thing while including its opposites. These are things that can't be quantified mentally; yet they can exist and be juxtaposed. That may seem very contradictory. Cinema allows you to film these contradictions. #Quote by Catherine Breillat
Cinema quotes by Toby Jones
#40. They seem much rarer now, those auteur films that come out of a director's imagination and are elliptical and hermetic. All those films that got me into independent cinema when I was watching it seem thin on the ground. #Quote by Toby Jones
Cinema quotes by Kevin Panetta
#41. When people see things that are strange & creative & they're like "the creator must have been on drugs!" it's like "no. you are just boring #Quote by Kevin Panetta
Cinema quotes by John Lasseter
#42. Rotten Tomatoes is such a great website, in that it has one foot in the Internet world and one foot in the cinema world, and it keeps its grounding between them just perfectly. #Quote by John Lasseter
Cinema quotes by Christophe Wall-Romana
#43. During the 1924 controversy over ownership of the word "surrealism," Breton's most vocal opponents were Ivan Goll and Paul Dermée who, like Epstein, defined surrealism via cinema. #Quote by Christophe Wall-Romana
Cinema quotes by Boman Irani
#44. There's a great charm in theatre; I enjoyed doing it for twelve years and did lots of plays. At this chapter of my life, I am a cinema actor, and I would like to continue to be so, and at some point I would return to the theatre. #Quote by Boman Irani
Cinema quotes by F. Scott Fitzgerald
#45. As the new alcohol tumbled into his stomach and warmed him, the isolated pictures began slowly to form a cinema reel of the day before. #Quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Cinema quotes by Rudy Vallee
#46. As for radio and movies, I like the movies better, although the work is much harder. The cinema has microphone technique, staging, and glamour all wrapped up into one. #Quote by Rudy Vallee
Cinema quotes by Guillermo Del Toro
#47. Tom Hiddleston is so fucking nice. It used to be in the past you were either nice, or you were good-looking and an asshole. #Quote by Guillermo Del Toro
Cinema quotes by Kabir Bedi
#48. I am going to produce a movie of my own. I am not going to stick to the time-tested formulae of Hindi cinema. I want to make a film for the present generation. So there will be a lot of new faces in the film. #Quote by Kabir Bedi
Cinema quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#49. Art, literature, and philosophy are attempts to found the world anew on a human freedom: that of the creator; to foster such an aim, one must first unequivocally posit oneself as a freedom. The restrictions that education and custom impose on a woman limit her grasp of the universe...Indeed, for one to become a creator, it is not enough to be cultivated, that is, to make going to shows and meeting people part of one's life; culture must be apprehended through the free movement of a transcendence; the spirit with all its riches must project itself in an empty sky that is its to fill; but if a thousand fine bonds tie it to the earth, its surge is broken. The girl today can certainly go out alone, stroll in the Tuileries; but I have already said how hostile the street is: eyes everywhere, hands waiting: if she wanders absentmindedly, her thoughts elsewhere, if she lights a cigarette in a cafe, if she goes to the cinema alone, an unpleasant incident can quickly occur; she must inspire respect by the way she dresses and behaves: this concern rivets her to the ground and self. "Her wings are clipped." At eighteen, T.E. Lawrence went on a grand tour through France by bicycle; a young girl would never be permitted to take on such an adventure...Yet such experiences have an inestimable impact: this is how an individual in the headiness of freedom and discovery learns to look at the entire world as his fief...[The girl] may feel alone within the world: she never stands up in front of i #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Cinema quotes by Carice Van Houten
#50. My father is a silent cinema freak, so he took me to 1925 silent films that took forever, like 5-hour movies, but I've seen a lot of that stuff since I was young. And then I saw the film 'Annie,' and I just wanted to be Annie; I just wanted to be that orphan kid and wanted to sing and dance. #Quote by Carice Van Houten
Cinema quotes by Nicole Kidman
#51. Cinema is a director's medium, so you're saying, 'What do you want?' Being an actor is about adapting - physically and emotionally. If that means you have to look great for it and they can make you look great, then thank you. And if you have to have everything washed away, then I'm willing to do that too. #Quote by Nicole Kidman
Cinema quotes by Orson Welles
#52. The cinema has no boundary; it is a ribbon of dream. #Quote by Orson Welles
Cinema quotes by Jonas Mekas
#53. In narrative cinema, a certain terminology has already been established: 'film noir,' 'Western,' even 'Spaghetti Western.' When we say 'film noir' we know what we are talking about. But in non-narrative cinema, we are a little bit lost. So sometimes, the only way to make us understand what we are talking about is to use the term 'avant-garde.' #Quote by Jonas Mekas
Cinema quotes by John Logan
#54. Cinema is a visual language, and you're always looking for visual metaphors for things. You know, if I was writing a play about Howard Hughes, I could have him give a monologue about how he's terrified to touch a doorknob. But on screen, you know, working with Marty Scorsese in 'The Aviator,' that became the series of images that told a story. #Quote by John Logan
Cinema quotes by Aaron Allston
#55. The chief difference between horror fans and science fiction fans lies in why they won't walk backwards. A horror fan won't walk backwards because he knows he'll be knifed by a madman. A science fiction fan won't walk backwards because he knows he'll step on the cat. #Quote by Aaron Allston
Cinema quotes by Francis Ford Coppola
#56. A lot of the young people make beautiful films or big films or are able to finance them, but they can't get anyone to distribute them, they can't get anyone to see them, so they go to these thousands of film festivals. So I still believe that even though a young kid might be able to make a masterpiece or something that changes the direction of cinema, the issue of how to get it to people is still not solved. #Quote by Francis Ford Coppola
Cinema quotes by Lav Diaz
#57. I'm interested in the cultural thing - music, then eventually cinema. I think it's part of my struggle as a cultural worker. I'm not into the armed thing. I cannot be violent. #Quote by Lav Diaz
Cinema quotes by Deepika Padukone
#58. I don't like differentiating between art and commercial cinema. #Quote by Deepika Padukone
Cinema quotes by Akira Mizuta Lippit
#59. Borges's extreme architecture attempts to visualize the universe by assigning to every object real and unreal, now and yet to come, a code or sign, a corresponding figure within the Library. It seeks to render totality visible, to effect a total visibility and visuality. The Library of Babel is a view of the universe inside and out, an X-ray of the universe and universal X-ray, seen from within and without. It is a representation of everywhere: a perfect duplication of the universe. And of you: universal. An endless and eternal cinema, an imaginary archive that extends into the universe until it is indistinguishable from it, until you are indistinguishable from the universe. #Quote by Akira Mizuta Lippit
Cinema quotes by Virginia Woolf
#60. For the film maker must come by his convention, as painters and writers and musicians have done before him. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Cinema quotes by Takashi Miike
#61. In terms of making TV drama, not everything has to make sense. In cinema, you usually strive for reality and a natural environment, but in TV, it's more acceptable to do something crazy and break with naturalism. #Quote by Takashi Miike
Cinema quotes by Jon Favreau
#62. I don't want to be an art-house movie guy, where people who go to film school can discuss your work, but people who haven't studied cinema can't appreciate it. By the same token, I don't want to be the guy who's making this commercial pap that people lap up but that disappears the minute you leave the theater. #Quote by Jon Favreau
Cinema quotes by Martin Scorsese
#63. Cinema is a matter of what's in the frame and what's out #Quote by Martin Scorsese
Cinema quotes by Robert Bresson
#64. Cinema, radio, television, and magazines are a school of inattention: people look without seeing, listen without hearing. #Quote by Robert Bresson
Cinema quotes by Paul W. S. Anderson
#65. These commercials, I directed them all from inside the tracking vehicle, so I was traveling about 85mph most of the time, so there wasn't really anyone sitting beside me other than the driver. But, you know, yeah the agency is there and VW is there, which is- they're paying for it all and also because the agency created the boards, they want to make sure that you're not going off the rails in executing it. And also they can help, because they- it's a very different thing to cinema. #Quote by Paul W. S. Anderson
Cinema quotes by Edward Norton
#66. David Fincher is probably the best comprehensive director in terms of being a manger of a process that must drive forward. He has such confident command of cinema language and visual language and script and performance. He knows more about f-stops than any cameraman, he knows more about lighting than any gaffer, he is a wonderful writer, and he can give you a good line reading. Under pressure, he is the kind of guy who you will just dive in with and trust and follow because his vision is so intense. #Quote by Edward Norton
Cinema quotes by Angela Carter
#67. Strangers used to gather together at the cinema and sit together in the dark, like Ancient Greeks participating in the mysteries, dreaming the same dream in unison. #Quote by Angela Carter
Cinema quotes by Colin Farrell
#68. I think that is what you want to do as a cinemagoer - to experience something fully. Some things don't let you experience them fully. It may be your own preordained prejudice where you can't experience them fully. But when you come out of the cinema having felt, thought, and experienced your way through two hours, that is a really cool thing. #Quote by Colin Farrell
Cinema quotes by Henry Miller
#69. How speak about an art which no one recognizes as an art? I know that a great deal has already been written about the "art of the cinema". One can read about it most every day in the newspapers & the magazines. But it is not the art of the cinema which you will find discussed therein
it is rather dire, botched embryo as it now stands revealed before our eyes, the still-birth which was mangled in the womb by the obstetricians of art. #Quote by Henry Miller
Cinema quotes by Antoine Fuqua
#70. It's not worth it, it's not about money, especially when you're dealing with a culture. It should be about elevating the idea of what we are and who we are as people in the cinema, and that kind of stuff keeps dragging us back down. #Quote by Antoine Fuqua
Cinema quotes by Sarah Ban Breathnach
#71. Some holiday traditions are sacred. In our house one such tradition is the annual Christmas classic cinema celebration. #Quote by Sarah Ban Breathnach
Cinema quotes by Francois Truffaut
#72. But the cinephile is ... a neurotic! (That's not a pejorative term.) The Bronte sisters were neurotic, and it's because they were neurotic that they read all those books and became writers. The famous French advertising slogan that says, "When you love life, you go to the movies," it's false! It's exactly the opposite: when you don't love life, or when life doesn't give you satisfaction, you go to the movies. #Quote by Francois Truffaut
Cinema quotes by Jean-Luc Godard
#73. The cinema substitutes for our gaze a world more in harmony with our desires. #Quote by Jean-Luc Godard
Cinema quotes by Pedro Arrupe
#74. This ... Godless society operates in an extremely efficient manner at least in its higher levels of leadership ... It follows a perfectly mapped out strategy. It holds almost complete sway in international organizations, in financial circles, in the field of mass communications; press, cinema, radio and television. #Quote by Pedro Arrupe
Cinema quotes by Alan Bradley
#75. If God meant for pictures to be sent through the air He'd have never would have given us cinema. Or the national gallery. #Quote by Alan Bradley
Cinema quotes by Sunny Deol
#76. I am an entertainer. Cinema is entertainment. It is nothing more than that. #Quote by Sunny Deol
Cinema quotes by Philip Jenkins
#77. Fritz Lang's 1927 film Metropolis is commonly regarded as one of the classics of cinema, and at the time it was probably the most expensive film ever made. Only in light of recent restoration work, though, can we see how explicitly it draws on apocalyptic themes in its prophetic depiction of modern society. Partly, Metropolis reflects the ideas of Oswald Spengler, whose sensationally popular book The Decline of the West appeared in 1918. Spengler presented nightmare forecasts of the vast megalopolis, ruled by the superrich, with politics reduced to demagoguery and Caesarism, and religion marked by strange oriental cults. Lang borrowed that model but added explicit references to the Bible, and particularly Revelation. In the future world of Metropolis, the ruling classes dwell in their own Tower of Babel, while the industrial working class is literally enslaved to Moloch. #Quote by Philip Jenkins
Cinema quotes by Paul Murray
#78. The accursed ship didn't sink for a full three hours. By the time it did, I was feeling so traumatized that even watching Dogface die offered little consolation. The dialogue, the acting, the vast emptiness of the whole endeavour! Was that what passed for cinema these days? I felt like I have been violated; violated by a team of accountants. #Quote by Paul Murray
Cinema quotes by Sondra Radvanovsky
#79. HD is not forgiving. Once you see your face for the first time in a movie cinema, you run straight to the gym. #Quote by Sondra Radvanovsky
Cinema quotes by Kati Outinen
#80. Normally, Finns wait for a couple of years and watch Aki's films on television. But it is as though the international reputation of 'The Man Without a Past' caused them to go and see it at the cinema. #Quote by Kati Outinen
Cinema quotes by Sergei Eisenstein
#81. American capitalism finds its sharpest and most expressive reflection in the American cinema. #Quote by Sergei Eisenstein
Cinema quotes by Michael O'Brien
#82. J.K. Rowling is a talented storyteller, but she has also used the style and technique of modern television and cinema media, which seizes the imagination by pummelling it, bombarding it with powerful stimuli, in a rapid pace, with plenty of emotional rewards. #Quote by Michael O'Brien
Cinema quotes by Noomi Rapace
#83. I always had this huge respect for American filmmakers and American actors. I always had this very strong love and respect for the American cinema. I always knew that I was going to leave Sweden. #Quote by Noomi Rapace
Cinema quotes by Miranda Otto
#84. Writers would hate me saying this, and I love words, but I have to say that cinema exists, on one level, for the power of the big image and what that image does. #Quote by Miranda Otto
Cinema quotes by Simon Pegg
#85. We've kind of grown up in a post-Star Wars era, and what Star Wars did to cinema, in terms of an explosion of that kind of blockbuster culture. It's thrown up a generation of geeks. With the evolution of computer games and the Internet, that's all impacted on us as a generation, and affected the creative element of that generation enormously. So whereas the different schools of filmmaking. #Quote by Simon Pegg
Cinema quotes by Brad Pitt
#86. Indian cinema seems to be growing very well at its own pace. #Quote by Brad Pitt
Cinema quotes by Kevin Spacey
#87. Secret Cinema has created a new way of experiencing film. The fusion of film and theatre allows for a much more powerful experience and adds an incredibly unique dimension for the audience. It certainly did for me. I was blown away #Quote by Kevin Spacey
Cinema quotes by Erik Larson
#88. Klemperer detected a certain "hysteria of language" in the new flood of decrees, alarms, and intimidation - "This perpetual threatening with the death penalty!" - and in strange, inexplicable episodes of paranoid excess, like the recent nationwide search. In all this Klemperer saw a deliberate effort to generate a kind of daily suspense, "copied from American cinema and thrillers," that helped keep people in line. He also gauged it to be a manifestation of insecurity among those in power. In #Quote by Erik Larson
Cinema quotes by Mark Romanek
#89. I've found music over the course of my life is slightly more astoundingly inspiring than great cinema #Quote by Mark Romanek
Cinema quotes by Gemma Files
#90. As time passes, the cast and crew go the way of all flesh, though their celluloid echoes remain--walking, talking, fighting, fucking. After enough time, every person you see onscreen will have died, transformed through the magic of cinema into a collection of visible memories: light on a screen, pixels on a videotape, information on a DVD. We bring them back every time we start a movie, and they live again, reflected in our eyes. It's a cruel sort of immortality, I guess, though it probably beats the alternative. #Quote by Gemma Files
Cinema quotes by Robert Smithson
#91. Noon-day sunshine cinema-ized the site, turning the bridge and the river into an over-exposed picture. Photographing it with my Instamatic 400 was like photographing a photograph. The sun became a monstrous light-bulb that projected a detached series of stills through my Instamatic into my eye. #Quote by Robert Smithson
Cinema quotes by Kage Baker
#92. Written and directed by French showman Georges Melies, 'Le Voyage' features one of the most indelible images in cinema history: the wounded Man in the Moon bleeding like a particularly runny Brie, grimacing in pain with a space capsule protruding from his right eye. #Quote by Kage Baker
Cinema quotes by Faraaz Kazi
#93. Beauty is the only human aspect which cannot be captured on any canvas howsoever hard an artist tries. At the most, the undaunted artist can replicate the beauty on paper but what is a replica in comparison to the original! The humbling resemblance can only be respected, not truly adored.
Beauty cannot be imprisoned in the lens of a camera. The images of beauty are a moment of its essence. Beauty cannot be displayed to evoke pleasure for all on a cinema screen. Those are just its imprints, mere illusions of its existence. Beauty cannot be described by words; it cannot be written or read about. There are no suitable words in all the languages of the world, ancient or modern to hold it between a paper and a pen or a script and an eye. Beauty can only be experienced from far, its delightful aroma can only be tasted through one's eyes and its pleasurable sight can only be felt from the soul.
Beauty can only be best described at its origin through a befuddling silence, the kind that leaves one almost on the verge of a pleasurable death, just because one chooses beauty over life. There is nothing in this world to hold something so pure, so divine except a loving heart. And it is the only manner through which love recognises love; the language of love has no alphabet, no words. #Quote by Faraaz Kazi
Cinema quotes by Guillaume Canet
#94. Music is one of the important things for me in cinema. #Quote by Guillaume Canet
Cinema quotes by Denis Villeneuve
#95. The problem in cinema is that you can never predict what will happen. #Quote by Denis Villeneuve
Cinema quotes by Samantha Morton
#96. I wanted to make a film - and I've been wanting to do this for 16 years - about life in care, and bring it to the public's attention, because I had never seen anything, on TV or in the cinema, which said: 'This is how it feels to be a kid in care'. #Quote by Samantha Morton
Cinema quotes by Henri Matisse
#97. Everything that we see in our daily lives is more or less distorted by acquired habits and this is perhaps more evident in an age like ours when cinema posters and magazines present us every day with a flood of ready-made images which are to the eye what prejudices are to the mind. The effort to see things without distortion demands a kind of courage; and this courage is essential to the artist, who has to look at everything as though he were seeing it for the first time. #Quote by Henri Matisse
Cinema quotes by Bob Mondello
#98. I mean, the paradox is that whereas the screen, it seems to me - the cinema can absorb endless amounts of music, it cannot really with comfort absorb large amounts of words. Not nearly as many words, that is to say, as a stage can. #Quote by Bob Mondello
Cinema quotes by Isidore Isou
#99. I want a film which really hurts your eyes. #Quote by Isidore Isou
Cinema quotes by Francis Ford Coppola
#100. Ten Days That Shook The World, by Eisenstein, I went to see it, and I was so impressed with this film, so impressed with what cinema could do. #Quote by Francis Ford Coppola
Cinema quotes by Colin Firth
#101. Because I am an Englishman I spent most of my life in a state of embarrassment. #Quote by Colin Firth
Cinema quotes by Martin Scorsese
#102. The cinema began with a passionate, physical relationship between celluloid and the artists and craftsmen and technicians who handled it, manipulated it, and came to know it the way a lover comes to know every inch of the body of the beloved. No matter where the cinema goes, we cannot afford to lose sight of its beginnings. #Quote by Martin Scorsese
Cinema quotes by Tom Hiddleston
#103. I love it when you go to see something, and you enter as an individual, and you leave as a group. Because you've all been bound together by the same experience. #Quote by Tom Hiddleston
Cinema quotes by Michael Haneke
#104. My films are intended as polemical statements against the American 'barrel down' cinema and its dis-empowerment of the spectator. They are an appeal for a cinema of insistent questions instead of false (because too quick) answers, for clarifying distance in place of violating closeness, for provocation and dialogue instead of consumption and consensus. #Quote by Michael Haneke
Cinema quotes by Ozzy Osbourne
#105. There was a cinema called The Orient outside the community centre where we rehearsed in Six Ways, and whenever it showed a horror film the queue would go all the way down the street and around the corner. 'Isn't it strange how people will pay money to frighten themselves?' I remember Tony [Iommi] saying one day. 'Maybe we should stop doing blues and write scary music instead.' #Quote by Ozzy Osbourne
Cinema quotes by Nick Willing
#106. Cinema was always taking the big risks, and TV was ambling along behind, just trying to touch the hem. #Quote by Nick Willing
Cinema quotes by Steven Rodney McQueen
#107. My influences come from real life. I'm not interested in cinema for cinema's sake. I'm interested in life - what one does and how one interacts. #Quote by Steven Rodney McQueen
Cinema quotes by Ben Mendelsohn
#108. The first 'Star Wars' film was enormously important. I grew up right smack-bang in the sweet spot of all of those. It's true cinema magic. It's fair to say that, as a kid, I would have been very happy to be Han Solo, and I would have been happy to have gone out with Princess Leia. #Quote by Ben Mendelsohn
Cinema quotes by Sergei Eisenstein
#109. For example, in painting the form arises from abstract elements of line and color, while in cinema the material concreteness of the image within the frame presents - as an element - the greatest difficulty in manipulation. #Quote by Sergei Eisenstein
Cinema quotes by Jeremy Irons
#110. I love being part of a group who tells stories, whether it be in the theater or in cinema, and I love creating imaginary worlds rather as children do, but I never had a burning desire to act, but it just sort of suited me. #Quote by Jeremy Irons
Cinema quotes by Brian Cox
#111. Feudal societies don't create great cinema; we have great theatre. The egalitarian societies create great cinema. The Americans, the French. Because equality is sort of what the cinema deals with. It deals with stories which don't fall into 'Everybody in their place and who's who,' and all that. But the theatre's full of that. #Quote by Brian Cox
Cinema quotes by Randeep Hooda
#112. A movie is a mass consumption product. I have got no delusions about being niche. I don't want to be niche. Though in the earlier part of my career I was into niche cinema, doing independent films - and I do have a revolutionary bent of mind - but you cannot make a change from outside; you have to be a part of it. #Quote by Randeep Hooda
Cinema quotes by Djibril Diop Mambety
#113. Cinema is magic in the service of dreams. #Quote by Djibril Diop Mambety
Cinema quotes by Woody Allen
#114. My films are therapy for my debilitating depression. In institutions people weave baskets. I make films. #Quote by Woody Allen
Cinema quotes by Kaya Scodelario
#115. I would love to make a Brazilian film, but it would have to be something very close to my heart. It's such a personal thing, so I'd want to do my family proud. I'd want to do justice to Brazilian cinema. I think Brazilian cinema is brilliant. I would really love to do something, but I'm just waiting for the right thing. #Quote by Kaya Scodelario
Cinema quotes by Thomas Langmann
#116. It doesn't matter if it's black-and-white. If a movie has a story that is filled with emotion, you can have as much pleasure, and it's very good for cinema. #Quote by Thomas Langmann
Cinema quotes by Terence Winter
#117. One of the nicest things I ever read about our show was that a critic felt 'Boardwalk Empire' could be the beginning of the blur between television and cinema, because the production values are so high and the storytelling is so compelling. #Quote by Terence Winter
Cinema quotes by Agnes Varda
#118. I'm still fighting. I don't know how much longer, but I'm still fighting a struggle, which is to make cinema alive and not just make another film. #Quote by Agnes Varda
Cinema quotes by Cornell Woolrich
#119. Stahl trailed him upstairs, across a mezzanine, and out into the darkness of the sloping balcony. Tom gave the aisle his torch so his guest could see. On the screen below a woman's head was wavering, two or three times larger than life. A metallic voice clanged out, echoing sepulchrally all over the house, like a modern Delphic Oracle. 'Go back, go back!' she said. 'This is no place for you!'
Her big luminous eyes seemed to be looking right at Lew Stahl as she spoke. Her finger came out and pointed, and it seemed to aim straight at him and him alone. It was weird; he almost stopped in his tracks, then went on again. He hadn't eaten all day; he figured he must be woozy, to think things like that. ("Dusk To Dawn") #Quote by Cornell Woolrich
Cinema quotes by Jean Baudrillard
#120. Intellectuals are doomed to disappear when artificial intelligence bursts on the scene, just as the heroes of silent cinema disappeared with the coming of the talkies. We are all Buster Keatons. #Quote by Jean Baudrillard
Cinema quotes by Truman Capote
#121. I am one of those persons who, when sexually immersed, require serious silence, the hush of impeccable concentration. Perhaps it is due to my pubescent training as a Hershey Bar whore, and because I have consistently willed myself to accommodate unscintillating partners - whatever the reason, for me to reach an edge and fall over, all the mechanics must be assisted by the deepest fantasizing, an intoxicating mental cinema that does not welcome lovemaking chatter.
The truth is, I am rarely with the person I am with, so to say; and dependence upon an inner scenery, imagined and remembered erotic fragments, shadows irrelevant to the body above or beneath us - those images our minds accept inside sexual seizure but exclude once the beast has been routed, for, regardless of how tolerant we are, these cameos are intolerable to the meanspirited watchmen within us. #Quote by Truman Capote
Cinema quotes by George Lucas
#122. Over time I began to realize that the level of cinema criticism in the last part of XX century in the United States was pretty low. The institution itself is not what it's supposed to be, and I realized that I didn't need to take that seriously. #Quote by George Lucas
Cinema quotes by Agnes Varda
#123. When I saw what painting had done in the last thirty years, what literature had done - people like Joyce and Virginia Woolf, Faulkner and Hemingway - in France we have Nathalie Sarraute - and paintings became so strongly contemporary while cinema was just following the path of theater. I have to do something which relates with my time, and in my time, we make things differently. #Quote by Agnes Varda
Cinema quotes by Halsey
#124. Being a musician, people ask you a lot about what musicians inspire you, and there's plenty of musicians that I love and respect, but I think that I'm the most inspired by cinema. #Quote by Halsey
Cinema quotes by Harmony Korine
#125. Cinema sustains life. It captures death in its progress. #Quote by Harmony Korine
Cinema quotes by Tahar Rahim
#126. Some kids go walking in the mountains, but I just went to the cinema. So when I told my parents I wanted to be an actor, even though this wasn't normal for Arab kids or anyone in the town, they were sort of expecting it and were very supportive. #Quote by Tahar Rahim
Cinema quotes by Quentin Crisp
#127. To minimize my guilt at going to the pictures - to call this wanton pursuit of an effete pleasure by another name - I needed movie companions as drunkards need drinking partners. If I entered a cinema alone, God might plunge his arm through the roof of the auditorium booming in a stereophonic voice, 'And you, Crisp, what are you doing here?' I would never have dared reply, 'I'm just enjoying myself, Lord.' #Quote by Quentin Crisp
Cinema quotes by Orlando Bloom
#128. Although it is a fantasy film, it's as real as it can be. You have to imagine that an audience will buy their ticket to a cinema and get on a first-class flight and journey to Middle Earth. #Quote by Orlando Bloom
Cinema quotes by Susanna Kearsley
#129. My children are as at home in the Port Elgin library as I used to be, and they've sat in the cinema seats where I sat with their aunt every Saturday afternoon, watching the matinee movies. #Quote by Susanna Kearsley
Cinema quotes by Francois Truffaut
#130. We must not make exaggerated demand on critics, and particularly we must not expect that criticism can function as an exact science. Art is not scientific; why should criticism be?

The main complaint against some critics--and a certain type of criticism--is that too seldom do they speak about cinema as such. The scenario of a film is the film; all films are not psychological.
Every critic should take to heart Jean Renoir's remark, "All great art is abstract." He should learn to be aware of form, and to understand that certain artists, for example Dreyer or Von Sternberg, never sought to make a picture that resembled reality. #Quote by Francois Truffaut
Cinema quotes by Ridley Scott
#131. Because I was a kid from north of England, the only films I had access to was not alternative cinema, which in those days would be foreign cinema; I would be looking at all the Hollywood movies that arrived at my High Street. #Quote by Ridley Scott
Cinema quotes by Christopher Plummer
#132. Theater roles are written by the great masters. The greatest literature that you can possibly know are the theater roles like King Lear, Hamlet, and all of those great roles. So all you do is you dive into these unchallenged roles and see how far you can get, what kind of accolades you can get, and how good you can be in them. In movie roles, you can actually improve them by knowing a lot about your own stage technique, which helps a great deal in the cinema and how you can project inner humor even though the particular dialogue is not necessarily funny, but you can infuse it with humor. #Quote by Christopher Plummer
Cinema quotes by Agnes Varda
#133. When I started my first film, there were three women directors in France. Their films were OK, but I was different. It's like when you start to jump and you put the pole very high - you have to jump very high. I thought, I have to use cinema as a language. #Quote by Agnes Varda
Cinema quotes by Wim Wenders
#134. But I think that the spirit of protectionism would be the grave of European cinema. You cannot protect something by building a fence around it and thinking that this will help it survive. #Quote by Wim Wenders
Cinema quotes by Jackie Chan
#135. Cinema reflects culture and there is no harm in adapting technology, but not at the cost of losing your originality. #Quote by Jackie Chan
Cinema quotes by Federico Fellini
#136. I even see the cinema itself as a woman, with its alternation of light and darkness, of appearing and disappearing images #Quote by Federico Fellini
Cinema quotes by Deepa Mehta
#137. It was difficult in India to find an eight year old who could play a widow. The reason for that is that most of the children in India are really exposed to Bollywood. It's commercial Indian cinema which is really over the top. To find an actor, or even a non-actor, who felt natural was difficult. #Quote by Deepa Mehta
Cinema quotes by Werner Herzog
#138. There are deeper strata of truth in cinema, and there is such a thing as poetic, ecstatic truth. It is mysterious and elusive, and can be reached only through fabrication and imagination and stylization. #Quote by Werner Herzog
Cinema quotes by Antoine Fuqua
#139. I became a director just for the love of movies, because of the power of cinema. #Quote by Antoine Fuqua
Cinema quotes by Kathryn Bigelow
#140. Cinema has the capacity to be so physiological. #Quote by Kathryn Bigelow
Cinema quotes by Francis Ford Coppola
#141. Sequels are not done for the audience or cinema or the filmmakers. It's for the distributor. The film becomes a brand. #Quote by Francis Ford Coppola
Cinema quotes by Brian Cox
#142. I didn't have this feeling that I should be a leading actor in the cinema. And I wouldn't want the responsibility of the opening weekend. #Quote by Brian Cox
Cinema quotes by Michael Palin
#143. I remember queuing around the block in Sheffield when I was growing up. At that time, going to the cinema was really something special - there was something about the style of the real thing that is immeasurable nicer than multiplexes. #Quote by Michael Palin
Cinema quotes by A.R. Rahman
#144. Music is the only passion I shamelessly indulge in. However, for recreation I enjoy watching movies. 'Wizard of Oz' was the first film I ever saw, followed by the 'Bond' movies. I also watch a lot of World cinema through DVDs mostly brought by one of my best friends who's now based in Toronto. #Quote by A.R. Rahman
Cinema quotes by Emily Mortimer
#145. To get art nowadays, in cinema or books or anything, that grapples with the possibility of a meaningless universe ... it just doesn't happen any more. In even the most indie of the indie films, everything has to come to some kind of neat conclusion. #Quote by Emily Mortimer
Cinema quotes by Mark Kermode
#146. Far from being a pack of baying butchers,critics sometimes have a perverse habit of tending to the sick and wounded on the cinematic field of battle, rushing in where angels fear to tread, even when the patient is clearly without a pulse. #Quote by Mark Kermode
Cinema quotes by Priyanka Chopra
#147. The great thing about cinema is that it's a great binder. It brings people from across the world together, often erasing the lines between geographies, languages, familiarity, and the like. Cinema is art and art, they say, is a reflection of life and society, so the way we tell our stories is the main differentiator for me. #Quote by Priyanka Chopra
Cinema quotes by Djibril Diop Mambety
#148. One has to choose between engaging in stylistic research or the mere recording of facts. I feel that a filmmaker must go beyond the recording of facts. Moreover, I believe that Africans, in particular, must reinvent cinema. It will be a difficult task because our viewing audience is used to a specific film language, but a choice has to be made: either one is very popular and one talks to people in a simple and plain manner, or else one searches for an African film language that would exclude chattering and focus more on how to make use of visuals and sounds. #Quote by Djibril Diop Mambety
Cinema quotes by Alfred Gough
#149. And having those mystical elements you see in Asian cinema and certainly Asian martial arts cinema, it's something that we wanted to begin to introduce - the idea of spirituality and the idea of there being something else out in the world besides people who are great fighters. #Quote by Alfred Gough
Cinema quotes by George Hickenlooper
#150. I think that narrative, fiction filmmaking is the culmination of several art forms: theater, art history, architecture. Whereas doc filmmaking is more pure cinema, like cinema verite is film in its purest form. #Quote by George Hickenlooper
Cinema quotes by Julian Fellowes
#151. I always loved movies and the cinema; we always used to go to see films as a family. #Quote by Julian Fellowes
Cinema quotes by Lav Diaz
#152. I'm not hoping to see that day but I know that my cinema will reach Filipinos. I know that they will embrace it one day. It will happen. I'm very sure of that. I still have faith in cinema. I still believe it can affect change. #Quote by Lav Diaz
Cinema quotes by Alicia Vikander
#153. I love films that make me react emotionally and physically when you walk out of the cinema. Two of my favorite films however have got to be 'The Tree Of Life' and 'The Piano Teacher,' which also stars one of my favourite actresses Isabelle Huppert. #Quote by Alicia Vikander
Cinema quotes by John Waters
#154. Watching a movie should be like hunting. Out of context, every image of the cinema is yours for a split second. Take them before they bury it. #Quote by John Waters
Cinema quotes by Mia Wasikowska
#155. Yes, a lot of European cinema and a lot of independent films and art-house stuff. She is a photographer. She is a visual artist and photographer and my dad is, too. My mum, I must credit for showing me good films. With my career, my parents were great and though they were a little wary, maybe, of the acting ambitions they have always been supportive. #Quote by Mia Wasikowska
Cinema quotes by Karl Urban
#156. I just really hope that Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema can resolve all their differences. I'm hoping that's going to happen, but we'd have to wait and see. I would love to explore Middle Earth again with Peter. #Quote by Karl Urban
Cinema quotes by Shahid Kapoor
#157. Indian cinema gives you everything that western cinema doesn't. It's maseladar and spicy. If you like Indian food, I think you'll love Indian movies. #Quote by Shahid Kapoor
Cinema quotes by James L. Farmer, Jr.
#158. Over the years, there has been an intermingling of film and aircraft. This relationship has generated all kinds of movies, including those filmed in San Diego. #Quote by James L. Farmer, Jr.
Cinema quotes by James Broughton
#159. Work in the theater sharpened my verse and my cinema. #Quote by James Broughton
Cinema quotes by Abbas Kiarostami
#160. When we are in front of an abstract painting, we have the license to interpret in any way we want. Or music - music is a medium that we might not understand, but that we feel and enjoy. But in the case of cinema many expect to receive a clear and unified message, but what I'm suggesting is that a film could be experienced as a poem, a painting, or a piece of music. #Quote by Abbas Kiarostami
Cinema quotes by Brigitte Bardot
#161. I have no regrets. If I wanted to keep acting, I would have never left the cinema. #Quote by Brigitte Bardot
Cinema quotes by Anurag Kashyap
#162. Cinema is much more than heroes and villains. #Quote by Anurag Kashyap
Cinema quotes by Jenni Olson
#163. I find that I always also manage to incorporate a simultaneous reflection on cinema history into my films. #Quote by Jenni Olson
Cinema quotes by Emir Kusturica
#164. Every movie that I do, if you analyze the stories, you can notice that in each story, that within the movie after the first 15 minutes, it could fall apart. Or every 10 minutes it has the chance that you lose the thread. On the other hand, if you succeed in putting them together, then the movie looks spontaneous and more like cinema. #Quote by Emir Kusturica
Cinema quotes by Bruno Dumont
#165. Personally, I don't give a toss about French viewers. I make films for foreigners - it's a bit like Ken Loach, who's not very popular in England but has had a lot of success in France. Cinema is always an experience in a foreign body. #Quote by Bruno Dumont
Cinema quotes by Agnes Varda
#166. At that time, when I started, in the '50s, cinema was very classical in its aims. #Quote by Agnes Varda
Cinema quotes by John Ford
#167. Anybody can direct a picture once they know the fundamentals. Directing is not a mystery, it's not an art. The main thing about directing is: photograph the people's eyes. #Quote by John Ford
Cinema quotes by Pedro Almodovar
#168. To Bette Davis, Gena Rowlands, Romy Schneider ... To all actresses who have played actresses, to all women who act, to all men who act and become women, to all the people who want to be mothers. To my mother.
- Dedication, Todo Sobre Mi Madre #Quote by Pedro Almodovar
Cinema quotes by Jeremy Renner
#169. I think cinema should provoke thoughts, sure, but using it as I soapbox I think is the wrong place. I never want to be part of something like that, where there's an agenda there that's not about telling a story, where its someone getting on a soapbox and preaching their own beliefs onto somebody. #Quote by Jeremy Renner
Cinema quotes by Neal H. Moritz
#170. So what'll happen is there'll be some very good cinema experiences are going to see 3D where you have to pay more. And there'll be some bad experiences of going to see movies in 3D. And I just hope that this kind of gold rush mentality doesn't kill what could actually be something that really, really benefits the industry. #Quote by Neal H. Moritz
Cinema quotes by Philippe Petit
#171. I am very sensitive to all form of music, painting, sculpting, dancing, and I love cinema also. For example if I look at the work of the dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov, who happens to be a friend of mine, everything he does is inspiring to me. #Quote by Philippe Petit
Cinema quotes by Jean-Luc Godard
#172. To be only spectacular should be 5 or 10 percent of cinema. #Quote by Jean-Luc Godard
Cinema quotes by Julius J. Epstein
#173. Ugarte: You despise me, don't you?
Rick: If I gave you any thought I probably would. #Quote by Julius J. Epstein
Cinema quotes by Quentin Tarantino
#174. If you love cinema as much as I do, and not many people do, and if you are focused and actually have something to offer, you will get somewhere with it. #Quote by Quentin Tarantino
Cinema quotes by Brian Cox
#175. In a sense I feel very much a part of the cinema now in a way where when I come back to the theater now I feel like a visitor. The cinema is really what I enjoy. I want to do more independent movies. #Quote by Brian Cox
Cinema quotes by Agatha Christie
#176. The old gentleman refuses to have the telephone which he regards as a device of the devil, and on a par with radio, television, cinema organs and jet planes, so I had to take a chance of finding him at home. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Cinema quotes by Pierce Brosnan
#177. Indian cinema is entertaining, and what I love most about it is the songs and dances in the films. #Quote by Pierce Brosnan
Cinema quotes by Kiran Desai
#178. How could anything be the same? The red of blood lay over the market road in slick pools mingled with a yellow spread of dal someone must have brought in anticipation of a picnic after the parade, and there were flies on it, left behind odd slippers, and a sad pair of broken spectacles, even a tooth. It was rather like the government warning about safety that appeared in the cinema before the movie with the image of a man cycling to work, a poor man but with a wife who loved him, and she had sent his lunch with him in a tiffin container; then came a blowing of horns and small, desperate cycle tinkle, and a messy blur clearing into the silent still image of a spread of food mingled with blood. Those mismatched colors, domesticity shuffled with death, sureness running into the unexpected, kindness replaced by the image of violence, always made the cook feel like throwing up and weeping both together. #Quote by Kiran Desai
Cinema quotes by Martin Scorsese
#179. I would have practically done all my films in 3D. There is something that 3D gives to the picture that takes you into another land and you stay there and it's a good place to be. ( ... ) It's like seeing a moving sculpture of the actor and it's almost like a combination of theater and film combined and it immerses you in the story more. I saw audiences care about the people more. The minute it started people wanted three things: color, sound and depth. You want to recreate life. #Quote by Martin Scorsese
Cinema quotes by Susan Sontag
#180. If an irreducible distinction between theatre and cinema does exist, it may be this: Theatre is confined to a logical or continuous use of space. Cinemahas access to an alogical or discontinuous use of space. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Cinema quotes by Ira Sachs
#181. I think there's a fear of difference in American cinema. #Quote by Ira Sachs
Cinema quotes by Gerard Depardieu
#182. If cinema is a woman then certainly there are many shores. #Quote by Gerard Depardieu
Cinema quotes by Todd Haynes
#183. People define gay cinema solely by content: if there are gay characters in it, it's a gay film ... I think that's really simplistic. Heterosexuality to me is a structure as much as it is a content. It is an imposed structure that goes along with the patriarchal, dominant structure that constrains and defines society. If homosexuality is the opposite or counter-sexual activity to that, then what kind of a structure would it be? #Quote by Todd Haynes
Cinema quotes by Ted Sarandos
#184. To me, cinema is not a movie or a TV screen, and it's not a seat in a building versus one in your living room. It's the art of motion pictures. #Quote by Ted Sarandos
Cinema quotes by Jean Echenoz
#185. It happend that Bob referred in front of Paul to the young woman met in Chantilly; it happened that Paul spoke to Bob of the one from the cinema that he'd had so much trouble seeing again. It never occurred to them that these portraits might bear a certain resemblance to each other, and the fact is that they bore none at all. #Quote by Jean Echenoz
Cinema quotes by Martin McDonagh
#186. I seldom feel comfortable in a theatre. I always feel like I own a cinema. I feel equally happy in an empty one as a full one. Probably happier in an empty one! #Quote by Martin McDonagh
Cinema quotes by Rankin
#187. I remember driving around with my parents when I was little and looking out of the window and being very aware that it was the shape of a film screen when you went to the cinema. This was how I first saw the world, framed through a car window. #Quote by Rankin
Cinema quotes by Steven Magee
#188. If your priority is a cinema experience in your own home then you should buy a large screen television, if it is good sleep and health then you should buy a small screen television. #Quote by Steven Magee
Cinema quotes by Mira Nair
#189. I came from the school of cinema verite documentaries, which was: Do not manipulate reality as it was happening but create a narrative in the editing room. #Quote by Mira Nair
Cinema quotes by Ginette Paris
#190. A myth is a fantasy, a preferred lie, a foundational story, a hypnotic trance, an identity game, a virtual reality, one that can be either inspirational or despairing. It is a story in which I cast myself; it is my inner cinema, the motion picture of my inner reality - one that moves all the time. No diagnosis can fix the myth, no cure can settle it, because our inner life is precisely what, in us, will not lie still. #Quote by Ginette Paris
Cinema quotes by Ross Mathews
#191. I revealed everything to her as we sat in my Fort Tempo in the parking lot of Cinema Five after seeing Spice World: The Spice Girls Movie.

"Carrie, can I tell you something?" I took off my oversized sunglasses and put them in my Spice Girls unisex tote bag. #Quote by Ross Mathews
Cinema quotes by Sophie McShera
#192. When I was ten, I had a weird cinema party where I invited everyone from my street to come. I pretended I was an usher and tried to sell them all popcorn. #Quote by Sophie McShera
Cinema quotes by Ira Sachs
#193. Without community events like NewFest, I don't think we'd have a queer cinema in America. #Quote by Ira Sachs
Cinema quotes by Lav Diaz
#194. There is no border. I'm branding my films as Malay cinema, but it's just about cinema. Everything that I make is about humanity's struggle, so there is no border, really. #Quote by Lav Diaz
Cinema quotes by Michael Winterbottom
#195. There's still a 1950s view of cinema, that there's one audience and they all want to see the same thing. #Quote by Michael Winterbottom
Cinema quotes by Peter Greenaway
#196. Cinema is far too rich and capable a medium to be merely left to the storytellers. #Quote by Peter Greenaway
Cinema quotes by David Foster Wallace
#197. I submit that the real reason we criticized and disliked Lynch's Laura's muddy bothness is that it required of us an empathetic confrontation with the exact same muddy bothness in ourselves and our intimates that makes the real world of moral selves so tense and uncomfortable, a bothness we go to the movies to get a couple hours' fucking relief from. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Cinema quotes by Ray Winstone
#198. Elaine and I got married in summer 1979, we went on our honeymoon and came back for the premiere of 'Scum.' All of sudden my face was on billboards in Leicester Square and people were crowding outside the cinema, going mad about the film. It was a complete shock. #Quote by Ray Winstone
Cinema quotes by A.O. Scott
#199. Campaign may invite a certain skepticism about democracy, but it will surely restore your faith in cinema verite. #Quote by A.O. Scott
Cinema quotes by Zooey Deschanel
#200. I love indie movies. I think that independent cinema is where it's at and where a lot of trends begin. It's where new filmmakers are breaking through. #Quote by Zooey Deschanel
