In England, I'm a horror movie director. In Germany, I'm a filmmaker. In the US, I'm a bum.
The world today doesn't make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?
I don't want to be a silly temptress. I cannot see any sense in getting dressed up and doing nothing but tempting men in pictures.
The challenge to me as a director was for the audience to see the film as going on in a straight line, so that they did not sense all of these break-ups. I did not want a film to be a collage of all these images.
I just did a picture book called The Wildest Brother on Earth, and you will find both of my children in there.
However, that old mode of Polish filmmaking virtually disappeared.
Cricket makes no sense to me. I find it beautiful to watch and I like that they break for tea. That is very cool, but I don't understand. My friends from The Clash tried to explain it years and years ago, but I didn't understand what they were talking about.
You've got to believe as a filmmaker that if a movie's good enough, it's going to survive; and if it's not, well, it won't.
There's no sense in being precise when you don't even know what you're talking about.
No one is an artist unless he carries his picture in his head before painting it, and is sure of his method and composition.
For in every particular of the Word there is an internal sense which treats of things spiritual and heavenly, not of things natural and worldly, such as are treated of in the sense of the letter.
Love is not to be found in someone else, but in ourselves; we simply awaken it. But in order to do that, we need the other person. The universe only makes sense when we have someone to share our feelings with.
Yeah, I mean the material, directors, the other cast, and if you think you can do something with the character then you do it and go from there. I am looking forward to doing some smaller movies.
The director, of course, was Bob Fosse. But again, I worked with my father to prepare for the role.
One of the signs of passing youth is the birth of a sense of fellowship with other human beings as we take our place among them.
A film director has to get a shot, no matter what he does. We're desperate people.
I began taking liberties a long time ago; now it is standard practice for most directors to ignore the rules.
I've lost all my money on these films. They are not commercial. But I'm glad to lose it this way. To have for a souvenir of my life pictures like Umberto D. and The Bicycle Thief.
Poetry, even when apparently most fantastic, is always a revolt against artifice, a revolt, in a sense, against actuality.
In a certain sense the Good is comfortless.
Some facts should be suppressed, or, at least, a just sense of proportion should be observed in treating them.
The soul never thinks without a picture.
I think the most insulting thing you can do to a director is to challenge when he or she is satisfied with your interpretation.
Every casting director I've met is a woman.
My father was always very interested in space. I watch Star Trek and all those things, but I always had a different picture in my mind... maybe closer to Alien. I don't see it in space as much as I do see it in different planets, with each having its own strange characters.
