If a million people see my movie, I hope they see a million different movies.
Quentin Tarantino, referring to his movie Pulp Fiction
A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
Stanley Kubrick
Every film should have a beginning, a middle, and an endnot necessarily in that order.
Jean-Luc Goddard
Alfredo : Living here day by day, 
you think it's the center of the world. 
You believe nothing will ever change. 
Then you leave: a year, two years. 
When you come back, everything's changed. 
The thread's broken. What you came to find isn't there. 
What was yours is gone. 
You have to go away for a long time... many years 
... before you can come back and find your people. 
The land where you were born. 
But now, no. It's not possible. 
Right now you're blinder than I am. 

Salvatore: Who said that? 
Gary Cooper? James Stewart? Henry Fonda? Eh?

Alfredo: No, Toto. Nobody said it. 
This time it's all me. 
Life isn't like in the movies. 
Life... is much harder.
Cinema Paradiso
