~By Walter Salles ~


I was studying to be an architect, I wasn't plotting to join the movies. Films were just another career option. I took acting up with the same schoolgirl enthusiasm I had for examinations. Acting is a job and I take it very seriously.
~By Aishwarya Rai ~

~By Yahoo Serious ~


Most independent filmmakers in Britain and North America work for commercial crews and then have their own projects when they've got enough money saved up to do so.
~By Ann Macbeth ~


A film is a petrified fountain of thought.
~By Jean Cocteau ~


I've always wanted to introduce hip-hop filmmaking to film. There's hip-hop art, dance, music, but there really isn't hip-hop film. So I was trying to do that.

You do the work and you want people to see it; but, um while I'm doing the work, the result doesn't matter at all to me. Ultimately, I don't, I don't care whether the film is - you know - some big giant box-office bonanza and I don't care if its a complete flop.

~By Nigella Lawson ~


Movies will end up being this esoteric art form, where only singular people will put films out in a small group of theaters.
~By M. Night Shyamalan ~


I think that's one of the things that has always put me in kind of an odd niche. It's that all of my understanding of orchestral music is via film, not via classical music like it's supposed to be. To me it's the same, it doesn't make any difference.
~By Danny Elfman ~


I brought the film like a flower to the world.
~By Claude Chabrol ~

~By Sydney Pollack ~


It's all just one film to me. Just different chapters.
~By Robert Altman ~

~By Alexander Kluge ~


The film's success so far involves winning a couple of prizes at Cannes and Sundance, and getting some very nice reviews in newspapers and magazines. That hasn't had a big impact on my life yet.
~By Harvey Pekar ~

~By Mark Rydell ~

~By Blythe Danner ~


The more sincere I could be, the better it would be for the film.
