"In the entire history of cinema there has never been a director, who has made such a dramatic stand for the human spirit as did Andrei Tarkovsky."

One of the more refreshing film analyses I’ve read recently. One that takes interest in the director and their interpretation/longing for the spiritual. With various articles based on their works and autobiographies; from Kurosawa, to Godard, to Tarkovsky. Once you get passed the web design it’s actually a great read.

"Life has been some combination of fairy-tale coincidence and joie de vivre and shocks of beauty together with some hurtful self-questioning."

"You can’t help but think that when you’re filming something that you’re recording movement. You’re not recording movement. You are just taking a series of still pictures. There’s no movement in movies at all, they are still pictures. But, when shown at 24 frames a second, through a light bulb, it creates the illusion of movement. So thus, as opposed to a recording device, when you are watching a movie, a film print, you are watching an illusion. And to me, that illusion is connected to the magic of movies."
— Quentin Tarantino (Digital vs. Film)
