For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake.

My movie is born first in my head, dies on paper; is resuscitated by the living persons and real objects I use, which are killed on film but, placed in a certain order and projected on to a screen, come to life again like flowers in water.

quotes Division : Filmmakers and Cartoonists   
     
People sometimes say that the way things happen in the movies is unreal, but actually it's the way things happen to you in life that's unreal. The movies make emotions look so strong and real, whereas when things really do happen to you, it's like watching television -- you don't feel anything.
~ Andy Warhol | ( American artist and filmmaker. ) | 1930-1987 | Cinema
quotes Division : Filmmakers and Cartoonists   
     
The cinema is not an art which films life: the cinema is something between art and life. Unlike painting and literature, the cinema both gives to life and takes from it, and I try to render this concept in my films. Literature and painting both exist as art from the very start; the cinema doesn't.
~ Jean-Luc Godard | ( French filmmaker and author. ) | 1930-? | Cinema

The making of a picture ought surely to be a rather fascinating adventure. It is not; it is an endless contention of tawdry egos, some of them powerful, almost all of them vociferous, and almost none of them capable of anything much more creative than credit-stealing and self-promotion.
~ Raymond Chandler | ( U.S. writer of detective fiction. ) | 1888-1959 | Cinema
quotes Division : Crime Writers   
     
The movies today are too rich to have any room for genuine artists. They produce a few passable craftsmen, but no artists. Can you imagine a Beethoven making $100, 000 a year?
~ Henry Louis Mencken | ( American journalist ) | 1880-1956 | Cinema
quotes Division : Journalists   
     
There's only one thing that can kill the movies, and that's education.
