Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#1. A movie is something you see, cinema is something that's made. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by George Clooney
#2. As a director, I do very few takes, because I feel like you hire the right actor and they'll do the job right. And the directors that I've worked with and had the best luck with - Jason and [ Steven] Soderbergh and the Coen brothers - all have been that kind of director. #Quote by George Clooney
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#3. I'm always a little unnerved when I see a show that's set in the past that implies in any way that things were nicer then. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#4. Dr. Jeffrey Korchak: [reading aloud] Dear attractive woman number 2, only once in my life have I responded to a person the way I've responded to you, but I've forgotten when it was or even if it was in fact me that responded. I may not know much, but I know that the wind sings your name endlessly, although with a slight lisp that makes it difficult to understand if I'm standing near an air conditioner. I know that your hair sits atop your head as though it could sit nowhere else. I know that your figure would make a sculptor cast aside his tools, injuring his assistant who was looking out the window instead of paying attention. I know that your lips are as full as that sexy french model's that I desperately want to fuck. I know that if for an instant I could have you lie next to me, or on top of me, or sit on me, or stand over me and shake, then I would be the happiest man in my pants. I know all of this, and yet you do not know me. Change your life; accept my love. Or, at least let me pay you to accept it. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#5. I'm still very affected and moved by their music - maybe in a way that's different from someone who grew up around it. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#6. Maybe I'll paint, do photography, just something else. I can see that. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh

Soderbergh quotes by Joe Carnahan
#11. I guess I much prefer the path of the contrarian: the guy who goes against the grain a bit. The careers of the people who I admire deeply - like the Coen brothers and Soderbergh - don't repeat themselves, and they make radically different films at times, and I think that's wonderful. #Quote by Joe Carnahan
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh

I think those qualities are now being seen on television and that people who want to see stories that have those kinds of qualities are watching television. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#14. When we look at what's going on in the world and we see the immense level of conflict that seems to always be happening - you can always trace it back to competing narratives. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh

Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh

Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh

Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#35. If I'm a director and I read a script and I say yeah I really want to do this, I would never walk away because the deal wasn't very good - that I wasn't getting paid very much or that the chances that I would see anything on the back end were remote because of the financial waterfall and the way it's structured. I would never use that as a reason not to do something. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#36. Traffic is about drugs. As detailed a portrait as I can muster about what is happening in the drug world, from top to bottom, from policy to how things move on the street. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#37. There's nothing else exactly like it in any other art form, the orchestration of so many different elements. It's endlessly fascinating what can be done editorially. You can create meaning where there was none, you can create feeling where there was none, you can create narrative where there was none. Two frames can be the difference between something that works and something that doesn't. It's fascinating. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Gina Prince-Bythewood
#38. 'Out of Sight' is one of my favorite films ever. Love Steven Soderbergh. 'Goodfellas' was a huge influence on me in terms of the use of camera. 'Black Orpheus,' a beautiful love story that very few people actually have seen, and that was an influence on 'Beyond the Lights,' too, in terms of the look of the film. #Quote by Gina Prince-Bythewood
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#39. I guess I didn't feel confident enough to be searching in a big public way. I was very content at the time to toil in obscurity on things that I thought might point me in certain directions or teach me certain things - not knowing what that would be. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#40. I was lucky that I was getting exposed to a lot of different kinds of films, and I was liking them all. So it seemed logical to me that you could - as in the style of the studio directors of the 30s and 40s - jump from one genre to the next, with the same satisfaction. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#41. I want to form a political party that's based entirely on what music people listen to. To me, it's a much better barometer of what they think and feel than their political stance. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#42. When a film like Chris Nolan's Memento cannot get picked up, to me independent film is over. It's dead. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh

Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#45. I've begun to believe more and more that movies are all about transitions, that the key to making good movies is to pay attention to the transition between scenes. And not just how you get from one scene to the next, but where you leave a scene and where you come into a new scene. Those are some of the most important decisions that you make. It can be the difference between a movie that works and a movie that doesn't. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#46. I stopped reading reviews about my own movies. I read stuff about other people's movies. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Matthew McConaughey
#47. Directors like William Friedkin (Killer Joe), Steven Soderbergh (Magic Mike), and Lee Daniels (The Paperboy) got in touch with me and wanted me to be part of their films. That was a whole new chapter for me. I didn't chase any of those films and it made me think that I was right to take a chance, say no to the kind of thing I had grown tired of doing, and wait until something good came around. And it did! #Quote by Matthew McConaughey
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#48. I'm sure some people will say, 'Why do this?' And my response is, 'Why wouldn't you?' The film business in general is using a model that is outdated and, worse than that, inefficient. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Rainey Qualley
#49. My favorite movies growing up were things like 'The Wizard of Oz,' but as I got older, I really began to admire people like Steven Soderbergh. #Quote by Rainey Qualley

Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#63. There are people who are originals and the stuff they make really is new. It isn't based on anything else. But I've decided I'm not that-I was never that. My abilities are to synthesize a wide range of references and ideas into something that feels relatively unified and coherent. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Marg Helgenberger
#64. By the time May rolls around, I'm probably going to want to spend a month on an island. But if Steven Spielberg or Steven Soderbergh or any number of directors were to say 'Hey, there's this role, are you interested?' I'd be there in a flash. #Quote by Marg Helgenberger
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh

Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh

Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh

#96. I've tried to get better about weighing what I think the accessibility of an idea is against the cost of executing it. I've tried to be smarter about that, because if you're not smart about that, you're going to be unemployed. But I'm still mystified about what works for people. And I'm not talking about my movies, I'm talking in general. I'm mystified by the stuff that doesn't work. I'm mystified by what's going on in the critical side, too. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh

Soderbergh quotes by Channing Tatum
#99. I can't do the same movies all my life. I'm conscious of that. But it's a trade-off. 'Dear John' allowed me to do movies I've wanted to do. You learn to balance it out. I'm still learning.

Soderbergh quotes by Steven Soderbergh
