    "The critics and the public wanted the pathos of M. Hulot’s Holiday and Mon oncle. They got Playtime, a comedy entirely devoted to space, in which Tati, as Hulot, hovers at the periphery of his own creation and has the elegance, which very few comedians share, not to put the spotlight on his own mug. The public and the critics turned against Tati. They were of course wrong, and the film is one of those few that get better by the year. It’s a silent film with sound; its color scheme is in a narrow band between gray and blue that aggressively underscores the painterly logic of Tati’s conceit. The film gives itself the luxury to reinvent choreography and as such dazzles with the megalomania of its enterprise and the diabolical precision the filmmaker had to conjure up to pull it off.”

  3. "Cinema is a composite art into which you can include all conceivable art or entertainment forms. In film, I can work with novelistic elements, comedy, drama, music, and other forms of entertainment. Film is a versatile expression, combining all elements into one art form."

  4. "[“Nashville” is] the ultimate, sprawling ensemble Altman film — the way each character has their own story to such a degree, and he pulls it all together. It has these thrilling moments, these funny moments. The music is both very moving and satirical, funny and beautiful too. Keith Carradine’s song, “I’m Easy,” is a beautiful song, and some of the other songs like “200 Years” by Henry Gibson is hilarious. It’s just ridiculous. So, that you could have all of this go into one big collage where you have realism, satire, romance — it’s all there — is quite a feat. And I actually saw this when I was a teenager — fourteen or fifteen — and I was bored. I didn’t really understand what I was watching, but I saw it a little bit later, and it kicked off something else in me."

  5. I was determined to detach myself from commercial filmmaking. I think its important for us to realize where our values lie, only if you understand your own work very clearly can you understand where you are. I personally have gone to the streets and sold tickets, I’m trying very hard to combat [the mainstream], otherwise we will only have Hollywood and McDonald’s in this world. Otherwise we’d only have genre films; film would only be one thing. — Tsai Ming-liang

    After the last end title, during a fraction of a second, there is a handwritten inscription “à Luje - Amour - A.” (To Luje - Love - A.) A. stands for Alexandre (Leos Carax’ real first name) and Luje for Juliette (Binoche).

    I always hoped that the audience would find these small, subtle details in my movies because you don’t see them elsewhere in other movies. Movies nowadays are all about stories. They’re in a hurry to impress you with a storyline. Within your lifetime you have to hear thousands and thousands…
