Personal Quotes (10)

  • "It's ironic that at age 32, at probably the greatest moment of my career, with The Godfather having such an enormous success, I wasn't even aware of it, because I was somewhere else under the deadline again."
  • "I always found the film world unpleasant. It's all about the schedule, and never really flew for me."
  • "The essence of cinema is editing. It's the combination of what can be extraordinary images of people during emotional moments, or images in a general sense, put together in a kind of alchemy."
  • "I believe that filmmaking - as, probably, is everything - is a game you should play with all your cards, and all your dice, and whatever else you've got. So, each time I make a movie, I give it everything I have. I think everyone should, and I think everyone should do everything they do that way."
  • "When I do a novel, I don't really use the script, I use the book; when I did Apocalypse Now, I used Heart of Darkness. Novels usually have so much rich material."
  • "I associate my motion picture career more with being unhappy and scared, or being under the gun, than with anything pleasant."
  • "Anyone who's made film and knows about the cinema has a lifelong love affair with the experience. You never stop learning about film."
  • " I liked to work in a shop down in the basement and invent things and build gadgets."
  • "I probably have genius. But no talent."
  • "I like simplicity; I don't need luxury."
