#DenisVilleneuve #Incendies) // " ... The #Radiohead song was attached to the opening of this film from day one. One of the ideas behind the song is for it to be clear that it will be a westerner's point of view about this world: an imposter's point of view. That it will be a fiction. When you put the image with an Arabic or Middle Eastern song it looks authentic, and I didn't like it at all." // Watch the damn film. A brilliant drama adaption of #WajdiMouawad's great play. // @filminflame
Capt. Koons to Little Butch // #PulpFiction - #QuentinTarantino) // "The way your Daddy looked at it, that watch was your birthright. And he'd be damned if any slopeheads were gonna put their greasy yella hands on his boy's birthright. So he hid it in the one place he knew he could hide somethin'. His ass. Five long years, he wore this watch up his ass. Then when he died of disentary, he gave me the watch. I hid this uncomfortable hunk of metal up my ass for two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the watch to you." // Cut to grown up Butch as he wakes up with a start. Shaken by the bizzare memory. // @filminflame
#AgnesVarda with #SandrineBonnaire on the set of #Vagabond (1985) // "You are always in the world. Even in Vagabond. I am not on the road, I am not eating nothing. But in a way we all have a Mona. We all have inside ourselves a woman who walks alone on the road. In all women there is something in revolt that is not expressed." // @filminflame I can't tell you how depressed I feel after hearing her death. She was magnificent and fresh in everything, even until her last days. Her creativity and adventurous spirit with a true artistic vision had no limits. She loved cinema, as she said herself either: "I live in cinema. I feel I've lived here forever." Many of well-known french new wave cinema techniques and styles began with her innovation, so she was like a grandmother to everthing you admire as a modern rule breaking avant-garde film. RIP legendary #AgnèsVarda. Hope you're happy with Jacques ...
#MayaDeren #AlexandrHackenschmied) // "What I do in my films is very, I think, very distinctively, I think they are the films of a woman, and I think that their characteristic time quality is the time quality of a woman. I think that the strength of men is their great sense of immediacy. They are a “now” creature, and a woman has strength to wait, because she’s had to wait. She has to wait nine months for the concept of a child. Time is built into her body in the sense of becomingness. And she sees everything in terms of it being in the stage of becoming. She raises a child knowing not what it is at any moment but seeing always the person that it will become. Her whole life from her very beginning, it’s built into her a sense of becoming. Now in any time form, this is a very important sense. I think that my films, putting as much stress as they do, upon the constant metamorphosis, one image is always becoming another. It is what is happening that is important in my films, not what is at any moment. This is a woman’s time sense, and I think it happens more in my films than in almost anyone else’s." // @filminflame
#JeanLucGodard (behind scenes of #Contempt) // "First there was Greek civilization. Then there was the Renaissance. Now we’re entering the Age of the Ass." // And I think as Lang belonged to a splendid Greek period of cinema, Godard blongs to a Renaissance period of it ... Guess When's the ass? // @filminflame
