Terms Of Service
Quotes by Directors
Life is full of misery, loneliness, and suffering - and it's all over much too soon.
Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful, because we're too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on the cell phone.
You simply have to put one foot in front of the other and keep going. Put blinders on and plow right ahead.
Visions are worth fighting for. Why spend your life making someone else's dreams?
Creativity is an energy. It's a precious energy, and it's something to be protected. A lot of people take for granted that they're a creative person, but I know from experience, feeling it in myself, it is a magic; it is an energy. And it can't be taken for granted.

For me, real life is hard work. Making movies is like a vacation for my soul.
Guillermo del Toro

Every viewer is going to get a different thing. That's the thing about painting, photography, cinema.
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.
The essence of cinema is editing. It's the combination of what can be extraordinary images of people during emotional moments, or images in a general sense, put together in a kind of alchemy.
Francis Ford Coppola
Nature's beauty is a gift that cultivates appreciation and gratitude.
Pick up a camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister star in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you're a director. Everything after that you're just negotiating your budget and your fee.
If you see with innocent eyes, everything is divine.
I have always preferred the reflection of the life to life itself.
'Cars' is simply near and dear to my heart.
I'm very, very lazy. I love to sit in a chair and look out the window and do nothing.
Life isn't black and white. It's a million gray areas, don't you find?
Black And White
My films are like clouds: their meaning keeps changing every minute.
I grew up in a family with two very strong women, my mother and my older sister, and they were big influences on my life.
Every edit is a lie.
Civilization is like a thin layer of ice upon a deep ocean of chaos and darkness.
The most honest form of filmmaking is to make a film for yourself.
Now more than ever we need to talk to each other, to listen to each other and understand how we see the world, and cinema is the best medium for doing this.
