It'll be the Internet and piracy that will kill film. There's a philosophy that the Internet should be free, but the reality is that piracy will destroy the film industry and film as an art form because it's expensive to make a movie. Maybe you'll have funky little independent movies, and it'll go back and then start up again some other way.More Helen Mirren quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I don't think anyone has ever managed to tap that on the screen - it would actually be too shocking.More Helen Mirren quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
