Text Quotes
I like to laze around. I think that’s a huge part of creativity. You have to let your mind relax and then another part of your brain suddenly connects with the solution you’re trying to find  (David Cronenberg Quotes) I’m not very well organized unless I’m plugged into a structure like the opera or a movie. When I’m doing that, I have to be organized  (David Cronenberg Quotes) My understanding of life is very existential. I think that we are our bodies. There’s nothing else, and when we die, that’s it. No afterlife  (David Cronenberg Quotes) We are at a major epoch in human history, which is that we don’t need sex to recreate the race. You can have babies without sex. This is the first time in human history that has been true, and it means, for example, we could do some extraordinary things  (David Cronenberg Quotes) But when you're writing a script - for me anyway - you have to sort of create an enforced innocence. You have to divest yourself of worrying about a lot of stuff like what movies are hot, what movies are not hot, what the budget of this movie might be  (David Cronenberg Quotes) Of course for many years directors have had to go on the road with their movies and promote them and I've done that since the beginning. So that's not new but the forms of it are different such as with the internet  (David Cronenberg Quotes) The more unique your film is and unusual it is and difficult it is, the harder it is to get it financed. That's why a lot of good filmmakers are doing television. They do HBO movies  (David Cronenberg Quotes) Technology is us. There is no separation. It’s a pure expression of human creative will. It doesn’t exist anywhere else in the universe. I’m rather sure of that  (David Cronenberg Quotes) The filmmaking process is a very personal one to me, I mean it really is a personal kind of communication. It’s not as though its a study of fear or any of that stuff  (David Cronenberg Quotes) All stereotypes turn out to be true. This is a horrifying thing about life. All those things you fought against as a youth: you begin to realize they’re stereotypes because they’re true  (David Cronenberg Quotes) Do you remember when you found out you wouldn’t live forever? People don’t talk about this, but everybody had to go through it because you’re not born with that knowledge  (David Cronenberg Quotes) Each kid has a different level of expertise and some of them are very raw and inexperienced and some are incredibly mature and experienced. So you just have to go with what they are rather than have some abstract technique that you’re going to try to apply to them  (David Cronenberg Quotes) Everybody’s a mad scientist, and life is their lab. We’re all trying to experiment to find a way to live, to solve problems, to fend off madness and chaos  (David Cronenberg Quotes) I think of horror films as art, as films of confrontation. Films that make you confront aspects of your own life that are difficult to face. Just because you’re making a horror film doesn’t mean you can’t make an artful film  (David Cronenberg Quotes) If you put yourself in a group of people you cannot work with it’s obviously going to be a disaster  (David Cronenberg Quotes) So not only can you not imagine dying, you can’t really imagine existence before you were born  (David Cronenberg Quotes) The problem with doing a schlocky or big budget studio film is that it wouldn’t actually be fun for me. It wouldn’t be exciting  (David Cronenberg Quotes) The artist’s duty to himself is a combination of immense responsibility and immense irresponsibility. I think those two interlock  (David Cronenberg Quotes) Well I don’t think sex and violence have ever stopped a movie from being mainstream  (David Cronenberg Quotes) When you’re in the muck you can only see muck. If you somehow manage to float above it, you still see the muck but you see it from a different perspective. And you see other things too. That’s the consolation of philosophy  (David Cronenberg Quotes) Your’e seeing me develop, not only as a filmmaker if you’ve seen my earlier films, but you’re seeing me kind of learn how to be a human, how my philosophy has evolved  (David Cronenberg Quotes) The way a child discovers the world constantly replicates the way science began. You start to notice what’s around you, and you get very curious about how things work. How things interrelate. It’s as simple as seeing a bug that intrigues you. You want to know where it goes at night; who its friends are; what it eats  (David Cronenberg Quotes) All romances end in tragedy. One of the key people in a romance becomes a monster sooner or later  (David Cronenberg Quotes) My dentist said to me the other day: I’ve enough problems in my life, so why should I see your films?  (David Cronenberg Quotes) I have no rules. For me, it’s a full, full experience to make a movie. It takes a lot of time, and I want there to be a lot of stuff in it. You’re looking for every shot in the movie to have resonance and want it to be something you can see a second time, and then I’d like it to be something you can see 10 years later, and it becomes a different movie, because you’re a different person. So that means I want it to be deep, not in a pretentious way, but I guess I can say I am pretentious in that I pretend. I have aspirations that the movie should trigger off a lot of complex responses  (David Cronenberg Quotes) Since I see technology as being an extension of the human body, it’s inevitable that it should come home to roost  (David Cronenberg Quotes) When I am creating art, I have absolutely no social responsibility. It’s like dreaming  (David Cronenberg Quotes) As a filmmaker, I ask questions but don’t have answers. Moviemaking is a philosophical exploration. I invite the audience to come on the journey and discover what they think and feel  (David Cronenberg Quotes) I don’t think that the flesh is necessarily treacherous, evil, bad. It is cantankerous, and it is independent. The idea of independence is the key. It really is like colonialism. The colonies suddenly decide that they can and should exist with their own personality and should detach from the control of the mother country. At first the colony is perceived as being treacherous. It’s a betrayal. Ultimately, it can be seen as the separation of a partner that could be very valuable as an equal rather than as something you dominate  (David Cronenberg Quotes) Anybody who comes to the cinema is bringing they're whole sexual history, their literary history, their movie literacy, their culture, their language, their religion, whatever they've got. I can't possibly manipulate all of that, nor do I want to  (David Cronenberg Quotes)
