Sidney Lumet

American film director, screenwriter, producer
I don't know how to choose work that illuminates what my life is about. I don't know what my life is about and don't examine it. My life will define itself as I live it. The movies will define themselves as I make them. As long as the theme is something I care about at the moment, it's enough for me to start work. Maybe work itself is what my life is about.More Sidney Lumet quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Suffice to say that the theme (the WHAT of the movie) is going to determine the style (the HOW of the movie).More Sidney Lumet quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Good style, to me, is unseen style.More Sidney Lumet quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If I don't have a script I adore, I do one I like. If I don't have one I like, I do one that has an actor I like or that presents some technical challenge.More Sidney Lumet quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Dolby was in the driver's seat. "Surround Sound" was added. Now we had three speakers behind the screen, two more on the left side of the theater, and two on the right. A closely guarded secret about all this is that you hear the correct balance only if you're sitting in the center of the theater. On the left or right side, those speakers tend to dominate.More Sidney Lumet quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
