Personal Quote:

The question is, is film merely entertainment, or is it more? If it is art, it has to be more. Art can be entertaining. The Gospel According to St. Matthew (1964) is entertaining, [but] it is more than diversion, it is concentration, [it] focuses your thoughts. [so cinema can change the world?] No, but it can make it a less sad place than it already is. See more »
