"We can't censor our entire lives because a psychopath goes nuts. People do bad things and you can't always just blame the movies." -- Roger Ebert, upon guest critic Jane Horwitz' request that Columbia Pictures should have shelved Idle Hands due to the violence in Colorado. "It's subtitled. It leaves out all the stupid people. That's how I see it. Of course, it makes it very difficult to make the money and get distribution. But to be a little arrogant, it's very hard in Europe to ignore the fact that North Americans are too stupid to read subtitles." -- Thomas Vinterberg discussing his film The Celebration. "It was impossible not to see that the love scenes were filmed like murder scenes, and the murder scenes like love scenes...It occurred to me that in Hitchcock's cinema...to make love and to die are one and the same." -- Fellow film director François Truffaut on what made Alfred Hitchcock so unique. "Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot." -- Charlie Chaplin. "Cinema, radio, television, magazines are a school of inattention: people look without seeing, listen in without hearing." -- Robert Bresson. "There is no terror in a bang, only in the anticipation of it." -- Alfred Hitchcock.
