Paul Haggis Quotes



[Still, who will complain, since in both real life and cinematic fantasy everyone agrees that what is needed all round is a change of image.

The movie men are looking for something new too.] We're trying to reinvent Bond, ... It's very difficult to think of new ways of blowing things up. It's the journey that's the thing - finding a new journey for the character.

Hitchcock's camera lingers voyeuristically over him as he struggles to retrieve it.] I'll never forget watching Bruno squeeze his hand down through that metal grate, ... Seeing the sweat forming on his brow, feeling his pain as the lighter remains just beyond reach.
