David Denby Masticates The Subject Of Spielberg At Seventy

“He is the most popular moviemaker who has ever lived, yet he has made many people uneasy, even resentful. Some have found him glib, his sense of action larger than life, his frame too busy, his temperament a jarring combination of violence and suburban sunniness. He can be tiresomely old-fashioned.”

Feature films are suffering a kind of bad time right now, in my opinion, because the feature films that play in theaters are blockbusters. That seems to fill the theaters, but the art-house cinema is gone. If I made a feature film, it might play in L.A. and New York, a couple of other places, for a week in a little part of a cineplex, and then it would go who knows where. I built this to be on the big screen. It will be on a smaller screen, but it’s built for the big screen. You want a feature film to play on a big screen with big sound, and utilize all the best technology to make a world. It’s really tough after all that work to not get it in the theater. So I say that cable television is a new art house, and it’s good that it’s here.”
~ David Lynch

“The purpose of film isn’t to present the kindness of the world.”
