“The shocking allegations of sexual harassment and groping of women by bloggers popular in the fringe film community is a microcosm of what happens when bad behavior isn’t addressed head-on. Just as we saw with Ailes, Cosby, O’Reilly and even filmmaker Nate Parker, there is no statute of limitations on the emotional scars inflicted upon women who’ve seen their complaints fall on deaf ears. What is clear is that whether it is a studio, network, talent agency or fringe film festival, the corporate price for dismissing sexual harassment complaints, and not enforcing a zero-tolerance policy for misbehavior, can be devastating as careers and possibly branded companies fall by the wayside.”

“You think you know something, don’t you? You think you’re the clever little girl who knows something. There’s so much you don’t know, so much. What do you know, really? You’re just an ordinary little girl, living in an ordinary little town. You wake up every morning of your life and you know perfectly well that there’s nothing in the world to trouble you. You go through your ordinary little day, and at night you sleep your untroubled ordinary little sleep, filled with peaceful stupid dreams. And I brought you nightmares. Or did I? Or was it a silly, inexpert little lie? You live in a dream. You’re a sleepwalker, blind. How do you know what the world is like? Do you know the world is a foul sty? Do you know, if you rip off the fronts of houses, you’d find swine? The world’s a hell. What does it matter what happens in it? Wake up, Charlie. Use your wits. Learn something.”
~ Shadow Of a Doubt, by Alma Reville, Thornton Wilder, Sally Benson

“Ophüls is my hero when it comes to blocking the actors and blocking the camera and the dance they do together. He’s just the best. By the way, have you seen The Post? I’d say Steven Spielberg is as good with the camera as anybody in film history. I saw it the other day, and I couldn’t believe how good he is at dealing with a lot of people in that small a space. He’s got ten people in a living room, and everybody’s moving around, and everything seems natural, and the camera’s dancing around them, and that thing is a miracle of staging and camerawork. I can’t wait to see it again, to really look under the hood and watch how he did it.”
~ Paul Thomas Anderson
