All my movies are achingly personal.
What is saved in the cinema when it achieves art is a spontaneous continuity with all mankind. It is not an art of the princes or the bourgeoisie. It is popular and vagrant. In the sky of the cinema people learn what they might have been and discover what belongs to them apart from their single lives.
It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you watch them on a screen.
Hollywood is a town; it's not a medium. And cinema is a medium you can practice anywhere.
The movies we love and admire are to some extent a function of who we are when we see them.
This film cost $31 million. With that kind of money I could have invaded some country.
It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.
I can understand the validity of showing people the ugliness of the world, but I also think there is a place for movies to leave people with a sense of hope. If your film isn't going to do that, I just don't think it's worth making.
We don’t make movies to make money, we make money to make more movies.
People sometimes say that the way things happen in the movies is unreal, but actually it's the way things happen to you in life that's unreal.
