I should prefer to have a politician who regularly went to a massage parlour than one who promised a laptop computer for every teacher.
A. N. Wilson
I think it's a terrible shame that politics has become show business.
When they see me holding fish, they can see that I am comfortable with kings as well as with paupers.
Whenever a man has cast a longing eye on offices, a rottenness begins in his conduct.
Whenever men take the law into their own hands, the loser is the law. And when the law loses, freedom languishes.
A lot of movies are about life, mine are like a slice of cake.
A story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end... but not necessarily in that order.
We are the movies and the movies are us.
When you make a film you usually make a film about an idea.
Cinema is a matter of what's in the frame and what's out.
Everything makes me nervous - except making films.
Every single art form is involved in film, in a way.
Everybody's a filmmaker today.
You read a script and its based on 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction', and it goes right in the bin.
A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
