MIL214's bookmarks

Cinema, radio, television, magazines are a school of inattention: people look without seeing, listen in without hearing.

An old thing becomes new if you detach it from what usually surrounds it.
The true is inimitable, the false untransformable.
My movie is born first in my head, dies on paper; is resuscitated by the living persons and real objects I use, which are killed on film but, placed in a certain order and projected on to a screen, come to life again like flowers in water.
Films can only be made by by-passing the will of those who appear in them, using not what they do, but what they are.
Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.
Celebrity-worship and hero-worship should not be confused. Yet we confuse them every day, and by doing so we come dangerously close to depriving ourselves of all real models. We lose sight of the men and women who do not simply seem great because they are famous but are famous because they are great. We come closer and closer to degrading all fame into notoriety.
Popular applause veers with the wind.
