Martin Scorsese

Today I'm starting something new here; hand-picked cinema wisdom from inspiring talent, directors, industry people or theorists are bound to find a welcoming hub, and equally welcoming readers.

The first quote comes from Martin Scorsese.  The Taxi Driver (1976) director, has become my obsession lately, due to the Cinematheque's Retrospective; the quote also features on the back of their program booklet for January (Do you ever check the back page? If not, start today) Enjoy!

"Movies touch our hearts, and awaken our vision, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places. They open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our lifetime. We need to keep them alive."
