Henry James

Henry James

~ Henry James, The Middle Years

Federico Fellini

Federico Fellini

I don’t like the idea of ‘understanding’ a film. I don’t believe that rational understanding is an essential element in the reception of any work of art. Either a film has something to say to you or it hasn’t. If you are moved by it, you don’t need to have it explained to you. If not, no explanation can make you moved by it.
~ Federico Fellini

René Magritte

Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see, but it is impossible.
~ René Magritte
