This was not a simple altruism or generosity on my part. It would look foolish any other way. She hit the screen like a bomb. ~ Gregory Peck
"We connected through the movies and we were experiencing something fundamental together, we were living through the emotional truths on the screen together. Sometimes they’re expressed in small things: gestures, glances, reactions between the characters, light and shadow. Things we wouldn’t discuss, or couldn’t discuss, or even acknowledge in our own lives, and that’s part of the wonder. So when I hear people dismiss movies as fantasy or make a hard distinction between film and life, I think that’s just a way of avoiding the power of cinema. Of course it’s not life, it’s the invocation of life. It’s an ongoing dialogue with life."
— Martin Scorsese
