Quote of the Day

“The moment you start preaching in a film, the moment you want to teach your audience, you are making a bad film.”

--Douglas Sirk (1897-1987), film director. I first heard this quote in Martin Scorsese's documentary “A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese Through American Movies,” a must-watch for anyone who cares about film.
