Text Quotes
Don’t ever let the viewer settle in and get ahead of you  (Paul Schrader Quotes) There’s no escape. I’m God’s only man  (Paul Schrader Quotes) The secret of the creative life is how to feel at ease with your own embarrassment. We’re all in the dirty laundry business and we’re being paid to take risks and look silly. Race car drivers get paid to risk their lives in a more concrete way; we get paid to risk our lives in an emotional way.  (Paul Schrader Quotes) Those artists who say that somehow therapy or analysis will thwart their creativity are completely misinformed. It’s absolutely the opposite: it opens closed doors.  (Paul Schrader Quotes) People who act against their own best interests are interesting characters  (Paul Schrader Quotes) Film noir is not a genre. It is not defined, as are the western and gangster genres, by conventions of setting and conflict, but rather by the more subtle qualities of tone and mood. It is a film ‘noir’, as opposed to the possible variants of film gray or film off-white  (Paul Schrader Quotes) All the animals come out at night  (Paul Schrader Quotes) I want to be happy; why do I do things that make me unhappy?  (Paul Schrader Quotes) Ultimately, it’s an illusion that you can understand yourself  (Paul Schrader Quotes) The secret of the creative life is to feel at ease with your own embarrassment  (Paul Schrader Quotes) The clock is impotent; mechanical time does not affect those living in an eternal present  (Paul Schrader Quotes) As screenwriters, we struggle with our own success. We have wallpapered our world and now we can’t get anyone to notice the picture we just hung  (Paul Schrader Quotes) Those artists who say that somehow therapy or analysis will thwart their creativity are completely misinformed. It’s absolutely the opposite: it opens closed doors  (Paul Schrader Quotes) I don’t think it’s very useful to open wide the door for young artists; the ones who break down the door are more interesting  (Paul Schrader Quotes) I still think like a critic, and I still analyze films like a critic. However, it’s not possible to write criticism if you’re making films  (Paul Schrader Quotes) Screenplays are not works of art. They are invitations to others to collaborate on a work of art  (Paul Schrader Quotes) Now I see it clearly. My whole life has pointed in one direction. I see that now. There never has been any choice for me  (Paul Schrader Quotes) You can’t take contradiction away. Part of the fun of it is that the contradiction never really quite goes away  (Paul Schrader Quotes) Contradiction is the heart and soul of character and drama. You’re always looking for it. I loved her so much I hit her; that’s character. I loved her so much I hit her again; that’s even more character  (Paul Schrader Quotes) I could be just a writer very easily. I am not a writer. I am a screenwriter, which is half a filmmaker... But it is not an art form, because screenplays are not works of art. They are invitations to others to collaborate on a work of art  (Paul Schrader Quotes) Anything that doesn’t bore me I think is doable because it’s keeping me awake  (Paul Schrader Quotes) The only economic paradigm that movies have ever known is capitalism. There were no church sponsors or state patronage. The idea was that if you’d pay to see it, we’ll make it for you  (Paul Schrader Quotes) If you write interesting roles, you get interesting people to play them. If you write roles that are full of nuance and contradiction and have interesting dialog, actors are drawn to that  (Paul Schrader Quotes) Once you have a situation that is fresh, then you sort of believe in it and it becomes normal. So you do end up with protagonists that haven’t been in other movies before  (Paul Schrader Quotes)
