BBC - Mark Kermode's film blog

Wednesday, 2 March 2011

"I like the idea of making films about ostensibly absolutely nothing. I like the irrelevant, the tangential, the sidebar excursion to nowhere that suddenly becomes revelatory. That's what all my movies are about. That and the idea that we're in possession of certainty, truth, infallible knowledge, when actually we're just a bunch of apes running around. My films are about people who think they're connected to something, although they're really not."
Jean-Luc Godard

"Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass."

Anton Chekhov

Editing is as important as the writing. "I believe more in the scissors than I do in the pencil."

Truman Capote
