“I cry all too easily at movies. And the movies don’t have to be all that good—I’m afraid the cinema is proof that cheap emotions are just as emotional as the more legit kind.”
The Higher Ed Of James Schamus

“I like all kinds of relationships, intimate relationships. I don’t know who can claim to be good at them. I enjoy making a connection, self-expression and exposure. I like intimacy. I’m wildly curious about the unfathomable mystery of the other person. I like acting because it’s made of relationships.”
Flirting From Jeff Goldblum

“My film is the first work to open the door to the dark soul of J.D. Salinger and, as such, isn’t harmless; it empties out a myth, and it gets people upset, which is what a good documentary film is supposed to do.”
Salerno Defends Salinger

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.”
~ Isabelle Huppert
