The Very Best Quotes on the Magic of Movies

“We love films because they makes us feel something. They speak to our desires, which are never small. They allow us to escape and to dream and to gaze into the eyes that are impossibly beautiful and huge. They fill us with longing. But also. they tell us to remember; they remind us of life. Remember, they say, how much it hurts to have your heart broken.”

Nina LaCour, Everything Leads to You

“Everything I learned I learned from the movies."

Audrey Hepburn

“A good movie can take you out of your dull funk and the hopelessness that so often goes with slipping into a theatre; a good movie can make you feel alive again, in contact, not just lost in another city. Good movies make you care, make you believe in possibilities again.”

Pauline Kael, For Keeps: 30 Years at the Movies

“Movies touch our hearts and awaken our vision, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places, they open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our life time, we need to keep them alive.”

Martin Scorsese

Films point straight to my inner self: the instincts, the gut-feelings, the fears, dreams and desires. They are such a powerful orchestral combination that I'm often moved to tears. They're for me an emotional therapy, between illusion and reality.

Ona Estapé, itcher

“Certain things leave you in your life and certain things stay with you. And that's why we're all interested in movies- those ones that make you feel, you still think about. Because it gave you such an emotional response, it's actually part of your emotional make-up, in a way.”

Tim Burton, Burton on Burton

“Oh how Shakespeare would have loved cinema!”

Derek Jarman, Dancing Ledge

“There are so many movies like this, where you thought you were smarter than the screen but the director was smarter than you, of course he's the one, of course it was a dream, of course she's dead, of course, it's hidden right there, of course it's the truth and you in your seat have failed to notice in the dark.”

Daniel Handler, Why We Broke Up
