Text Quotes
I’ve always had an underdog perspective  (Jason Reitman Quotes) Everyone wants to be loved; everyone wants to know where they’re going in life; everyone wants to have a sense of direction and feel the next day is going to be better than today. We just all deal with it in a different way.  (Jason Reitman Quotes) I don’t believe in director’s cuts where you make things longer. The coolest thing was when the Coen brothers did a director’s cut of ‘Blood Simple,’ and they made it shorter  (Jason Reitman Quotes) Growing up sucks, doesn’t it? I understand why people wouldn’t want to get old - but it’d be one thing if we became a culture obsessed with eating right, doing yoga, going to therapy and becoming at one with ourselves. That be great. But we don’t do that. We seem to be obsessed with all the wrong ways to stay young  (Jason Reitman Quotes) I hate movies that tell people what to think. I’m proud that Democrats thought ‘Thank You For Smoking’ was their film and Republicans thought it was theirs. I’m proud that pro-choice people thought ‘Juno’ was their film and pro-life people thought it was theirs  (Jason Reitman Quotes) And the biggest improvement I see between ‘Up in the Air’ and ‘Juno’ and ‘Thank You for Smoking’ is that ‘Up in the Air’ deals with the complicated human stuff in a way that my other films have not. It’s a more articulated film, and because of that, I’m most proud of it  (Jason Reitman Quotes) I used to have a group called Bad-Movie Saturday. Every Saturday, six of us would go see the worst movie that came out each weekend. It’d be noon in Burbank. It was just a running commentary. All executives - we would each talk through the movie and make jokes  (Jason Reitman Quotes) When you’re young, you want to make every kind of film: musicals, Westerns, horror. Slowly you begin to hear your own voice. I hope people receive what I do as small, personal films that are somewhat contrarian about their main characters  (Jason Reitman Quotes) When I think of ‘Nightmare on Elm Street,’ there was a warmth to those teenagers that I related to. They were not aware that they were in the middle of a horror film, and I really loved those characters and I empathized with them  (Jason Reitman Quotes) Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper’ is inventive, entertaining, and thought-provoking in every way a movie can be. It is in fact the kind of movie that reminds us why we watch them and make them, a beautifully told story that deserves to be not only remembered, but acknowledged for its writing  (Jason Reitman Quotes) I’ve been very, very lucky in my career, in my life - from day one. When aspiring directors say, ‘What’s your advice?’ first I say, ‘Be born the son of a famous director. It’s invaluable.’  (Jason Reitman Quotes) I think romance is a tool, comedy is a tool and drama is a tool. I really just want to tell stories that challenge the viewer, move people, make you laugh, perhaps push an idea about being open-minded but never settle on a genre or an opinion. I hate genre. I like movies that are original in their approach  (Jason Reitman Quotes) I have a strange fascination with the Midwest. I’m waiting to find out that my parents are actually from the Midwest. I grew up in Beverly Hills, up the street, and I just feel comfortable there. I’ve shot in Minneapolis, in Detroit, in St. Louis, in Omaha - they would say they’re the Plains, not the Midwest - and I love it  (Jason Reitman Quotes) As far as writing, I like watching bad movies. Nothing stops me in my tracks more than watching a great film like ‘The Godfather’ or ‘Dog Day Afternoon’ or ‘The Graduate.’ You watch one of those, and you never want to write again. Whereas with bad movies, it makes you think, If that counts, I certainly could write  (Jason Reitman Quotes) All the airports kind of feel and look the same now. Some are more beautiful, some are less beautiful, but for the most part you’re going to find a Starbucks in every airport. You’re going to get your coffee and the ‘USA Today’ or ‘New York Times’ in every airport  (Jason Reitman Quotes) ‘Alien’ asked ground-breaking questions about eco-politics and female empowerment. ‘The Matrix’ delved deeper into the concept of perception versus reality than perhaps any other film I know. But for some reason, we tend not to remember the significance of their writing  (Jason Reitman Quotes) Most people are nostalgic in a way that they’re fond of the past, but they still are happy that they are where they are now. You know, when you say, ‘Oh, high school was this or that,’ you don’t want to go back. No matter how much you loved high school, you don’t want to actually be back in high school. I certainly wouldn’t  (Jason Reitman Quotes) What I do feel is that ‘Up in the Air’ is the most indicative film of 2009. It is the portrait of 2009  (Jason Reitman Quotes) When characters change on screen, it makes you feel better about yourself. You think, ‘Oh I change too, I’m constantly becoming a better person.’  (Jason Reitman Quotes) I remember when I was like 19 years old and I started a desk calendar company to pay for my first short film, just so I could say one day that my daddy didn’t pay for my first short film. And I really established myself in the film festival world.  (Jason Reitman Quotes) I don’t consider myself bossy, but I do know what I want. You know, I have a gut feeling about a piece of material, but I’ve never envisioned myself as the director on top of the hill with a megaphone in my hand, screaming at 1,000 extras.  (Jason Reitman Quotes) And as a director, you make 1,000 decisions a day, mostly binary decisions: yes or no, this one or that one, the red one or the blue one, faster or slower. And it’s the culmination of those decisions that define the tone of the film and whether or not it moves people.  (Jason Reitman Quotes) I hear the way people talk about the children of famous people. They’re not treated very well. The presumptions are usually quite awful. So I tried to establish myself with a couple of movies. After ‘Juno’ I thought: ‘I think I’ve defined myself enough as my own director that I’d love to work with my father.’  (Jason Reitman Quotes) There certainly is no secret in that there are plenty of people who don’t like plenty of my movies. Each one of my films is personal; each one of my films is emotionally autobiographical. And I like directors who do that. With each one of my films, I’m exploring one of my own issues and I try to expose myself a little in the film.  (Jason Reitman Quotes) I think it’s a mistake for young filmmakers to just buy digital equipment and shoot a feature. Make short films first, make your mistakes and learn from them.  (Jason Reitman Quotes) Comedy and horror are cousins; they’re related. They both come from storytellers who want to specifically affect the audience and elicit specific reactions during the movie.  (Jason Reitman Quotes) Growing up the son of a director has made me very aware of the various turns that a directing career can take. Sometimes your films turn out exactly as you want. Sometimes they don’t. I spent a lot of my childhood on sets. I think as a joke, my father gave me a line of dialogue in each of his films during the worst moments of my puberty.  (Jason Reitman Quotes) Humanizing good people is kind of boring and I don’t really see the value in it... humanizing tricky characters is exhilarating, and making audience films out of indie subjects excites me.  (Jason Reitman Quotes) And I certainly like being on a plane, next to a stranger, having conversations that you’d never otherwise have. You’re unplugged, your phone doesn’t work, you’re not online.  (Jason Reitman Quotes) Being the son of a filmmaker, you are aware of a career as a director. You don’t think of it as just movies, but as a life.  (Jason Reitman Quotes)
