Don't mention your move before you make a move.

Sex and the City 2 makes Phyllis Schlafly look like Andrea Dworkin. Or that super-masculine version of Cynthia Nixon that Cynthia Nixon dates.

SATC2 takes everything that I hold dear as a woman and as a human—working hard, contributing to society, not being an entitled cunt like it's my job—and rapes it to death with a stiletto that costs more than my car. It is 146 minutes long, which means that I entered the theater in the bloom of youth and emerged with a family of field mice living in my long, white mustache.

You must be really bad, because it is a puzzle. Creating anything is hard. It’s a cliché thing to say, but every time you start a job, you just don’t know anything. I mean, I can break something down, but ultimately I don’t know anything when I start work on a new movie. You start stabbing out, and you make a mistake, and it’s not right, and then you try again and again. The key is you have to commit. And that’s hard because you have to find what it is you are committing to.
Lars Von Trier
Perhaps the only difference between me and other people is that I’ve always demanded more from the sunset. More spectacular colors when the sun hit the horizon. That’s perhaps my only sin.

Y finalmente, ésta pregunta. El misterio de quién protagoniza ésta historia, de quién baja el telón. ¿Quién es el que elige nuestros pasos de baile? ¿Quién nos vuelve locos, nos azota con látigos y nos corona cuando sobrevivimos a los imposible? ¿Quién es el que hace todas estas cosas? ¿Quién honra a los que amamos con la vida que vivimos? ¿Quién envia monstruos a matarnos y al mismo tiempo canta que nunca moriremos? ¿Quién nos enseña que es real y cómo reír frente a las mentiras? ¿Quien decide por qué vivimos y por qué daríamos la vida? ¿Quien nos encadena? ¿Y quién tiene la llave que puede liberarnos? TÚ. Tienes todas las armas que necesitas. ¡Ahora pelea!

Passion makes you good, but pride stops you to get better.
My sense is, I think it's okay for directors to do movies that speak to other work in their career.
When I make a film, I never stop uncovering mysteries, making discoveries. When I'm writing, filming, editing, even doing promotional work, I discover new things about the film, about myself, and about others. That is what I'm subconsciously looking for when shooting a film: to glimpse the enigmas of life, even if I don't resolve them, but at least to uncover them. Cinema is curiosity in the most intense meaning of the word.
I like simple things. I like to sneak in the theatre and watch movies. I'm a movie buff.
I definitely in filmmaking more and more find writing and directing a means to harvest material for editing. It's all about editing.

Your mind is a movie, your eyes are the projector, so everything you see is coming from you — me, her, him, the train, everything, everyone. But not only are you watching this movie, so is everyone else. And to top it off, you’re starring in it and so is everyone else.

In the Awakenings movie I found it very interesting that the most profound awakenings in the catatonic patients occurred in 1969, the year that the Aurora Borealis was seen from N.Y. to Louisiana. It seems the patients were getting environmental radiation stimulation in addition to their L-Dopa drug that year. L-Dopa plus radiation therapy may eventually be proven to be a very potent brain stimulant.
