“Twitter has proven to be a minefield for celebrities. It provides celebrities with an opportunity to make any number of careless mistakes that can come back to haunt them. But in a war environment, where emotions are so high and people are seeing pictures on CNN of babies dying and crying, it’s particularly incendiary.”

“Why did the famous white actress not turn black to elude the cops or who ever wanted to get their grubby little hands on her? It sounds like a pretty cool thing to do (use your brilliant brain to become a sister like that); cool, that is, to someone who has no clue about the history of 20th century entertainment in the U.S. … Do not change the color of your skin from white to black. We are not there yet. We are not a post-racial society.”

“I’m a vehement opponent of adventure. Any idiot can go to Antarctica. And any idiot can climb Mount Everest. Even grannies have done it. There are thousands lining up. There is no adventure left.”
Mark Olsen Listens In On Werner Herzog As His 1970-1999 Blu-Ray Box Set Hits The Street
And – “When you look at the box set, it looks like a brick. Like a piece of rock; I can stand on this piece of rock.”

NY Times

“What a pleasure it is to watch a film showing life as it is, not warped into a fantasy of superhuman power. You can feast on such realism in Richard Linklater’s seven-course masterpiece, Boyhood, or sample it in Joe Swanberg’s modest but savory amuse-bouche, Happy Christmas. Both films are portraits of white middle-class American families, the first set in Texas and stretching over 12 years, the second during a single Christmas holiday in Chicago.”
Holden Emits A Quiet Rave

“The paradox is that Farocki is probably more important as a writer than as a filmmaker, that his films are more written about than seen, and that instead of being a failing, this actually underlines his significance to the cinema today and his considerable role in the contemporary political avant-garde.”
Harun Farocki, 70, Made Over 90 Films

“I have to interrupt you. No. the answer is no. I’m just a storyteller. Please don’t confuse the character in a story and the storyteller. Of course there is a connection and of course there is a human being that you sense behind the films, but don’t take it one-on-one that Herzog is Aguirre, the mad conquistador or something like that. This attempt has been made and it has failed all the time. Thank God, I’m not the central figure of my films.”
~ Werner Herzog To Mark Olsen

 

 

“I am just grateful I am still around. I would love to be Steven Soderbergh, but I am lucky to be Joe Swanberg. Actors want to work with me, people want to give me money, and my nightmare scenario remains: Getting in bed with a studio, spending years on a movie, and it turns out horrible, but now I’m rich.”

Actually, by Hollywood standards, you’re right, I said. That is unambitious.

“It is, and yet, if you can go to bed happy at night, doing what you want, isn’t that ambition for a lifetime?”
~ Swanberg On Swanberg By Borelli
