Peter Greenaway

English director
I have a very, very secret drive to become a dilettante, without the pejorative overtones or the obligation to produce myself. There's so much to examine, so much to contemplate. I have enormous enthusiasm when I start a new project but then there's the meetings and the counter-meetings, the rehearsals, the struggles. You have to keep pushing and pushing and pushing to get your dreams realised.More Peter Greenaway quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Americans don't understand what metaphor in cinema is about. They're extremely good at making straightforward, linear narrative movies, which entertain superbly. But they very rarely do anything else.More Peter Greenaway quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Here was opportunity to make an audience walk and move, be sociable in a way never dreamed of by the rigors of cinema-watching, in circumstances where many different perspectives could be brought to bear on a series of phenomena associated with the topics under consideration. Yet all the time it was a subjective creation under the auspices of light and sound, dealing with a large slice of cinema's vocabulary.More Peter Greenaway quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Cinema is not a playground for Sharon Stone.More Peter Greenaway quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Cinema is far too rich and capable a medium to be merely left to the storytellers.More Peter Greenaway quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
