Sergei Eisenstein quotes

The profession of film director can and should be such a high and precious one; that no man aspiring to it can disregard any knowledge that will make him a better film director or human being.

Now why should the cinema follow the forms of theater and painting rather than the methodology of language, which allows wholly new concepts of ideas to arise from the combination of two concrete denotations of two concrete objects?

The difference between a hero and a coward is one step sideways. Gene Hackman

If anybody wanted to photograph my life, they'd get bored in a day. Matt Damon
