Great Film

Total Quotes : 24
Doing Technique

I'm in total awe of the technique of great film people. Because if you get your emotional life up to perfection by miracle on Take One, you better have a technique to keep doing it again and again and again.

- Ali MacGraw

Love TV

I want to go wherever there's great work. I'm a huge fan of film primarily. But you can get a great TV show and get attached to it. Making a great film is forever, though, so I always want to be part of film. It's my first love.

United Your

Last Rather

- Jonathan Jackson

Maybe Other

I don't think any actor has the luxury of knowing exactly what scripts are going to turn out well and what ones aren't. It would be wonderful to have that particular skill, and maybe people like Tom Cruise have it more than most, but you go into each project hoping that a good, if not great, film will come out the other end.

- Jonny Lee Miller

Other Films

Game Based

Score Material

'Liberace's a great film. It's a great piece of material. I have a great script and it's a great score.

- Jerry Weintraub

Feel Almost

I do feel like 'The Dark Knight' is a great film, but that Batman in there? He's almost like Robocop to me. He's almost robotic looking; he's got this surgical approach to everything... He's almost not human. That's supposed to be his whole point: he's supposed to be the most human of superheroes.

- Lee Bermejo

Challenge Film

Made Films

Yeah Hesitant

Well, the studios don't really want to take those risks right off the bat. They'll take the risk after they've seen the finished product and say oh yeah we want that. This is a great film but they are hesitant to take the risk when you just see it on paper.

- Nia Long

Film Editor

The great film editor is not a cutter, he's a storyteller, right?

- Ridley Scott

Been Became

Tisch has a great film program and a great acting program, but they are segregated; you don't really intertwine. My peers knew I liked acting, so they'd be like, 'Go get that guy Gubler. He'll be in your student film.' I was in the same building. I became their go-to guy. So I left NYU having been in probably one thousand short films.

- Matthew Gray Gubler

Voice Need

The film industry sees the writer as fungible: The thinking goes, As long as we have Brad Pitt and all this money, we have a great film! No, you need a writer with voice and an engaging story, or what you have is a bomb.

- Melissa Rosenberg

Mine Very

There is a friend of mine that is very into the comic book world, and he showed me '300,' and I looked at it, and I said, 'Wow, that could be a great film.'

- Rodrigo Santoro

Idea Things

Any film that supports the idea that things can be changed is a great film in my eyes.

- Wim Wenders

Fiction Prefer

While I prefer generally more personal dramas in which I can stretch myself... and while I'm not a science fiction buff, I consider '2001' a great film, absolutely enthralling; at 'Star Wars' I had a fabulous time, and, at 'Alien,' while it was a silly story, I was knocked out.

- Yvette Mimieux
