Every single art form is involved in film, in a way.
When you make a film you usually make a film about an idea.
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
Everyone told me to pass on Speed because it was a 'bus movie.'
And in movies you must be a gambler. To produce films is to gamble.
I just like movies that somehow expose the world in a way that's different than you imagine it.
You read a script and its based on 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction', and it goes right in the bin.
Citizen Kane is perhaps the one American talking picture that seems as fresh now as the day it opened. It may seem even fresher.
I've always been an animal lover. I've grown up with dogs my whole life. I think that is what helped me get the role on 'Lassie', I was comfortable around the dog, where many of the kids were afraid or intimidated by Lassie.
Film lovers are sick people.
I don't think you should feel about a film. You should feel about a woman, not a movie. You can't kiss a movie.
A story should have a beginning, a middle and an end, but not necessarily in that order.
I was obsessed with romance. When I was in high school, I saw 'Doctor Zhivago' every day from the day it opened until the day it left the theater.
Movies are not scripts - movies are films; they're not books, they're not the theatre.
Sometimes in movies, I still have to be the hero, but it's not all that important to me anymore.
I'm married to the theater but my mistress is the films.
Nobody makes movies bad on purpose.
'Home Alone' was a movie, not an alibi.
It couldn't sound like a dog, because K9 isn't a dog, but I made it sound as mechanical as possible.
We are the movies and the movies are us.
