On directing > The enemy of Art | Orson Welles

Irving Penn, Orson Welles, Portrait with Symbols, 1945

"The enemy of art is the absence of limitations." 

“A writer needs a pen, an artist needs a brush, but a filmmaker needs an army.” 

“In the theater there are 1,500 cameras rolling at the same time - in the cinema, only one”

“The essential is to excite the spectators. If that means playing Hamlet on a flying trapeze or in an aquarium, you do it.” 

“Movie directing is a perfect refuge for the mediocre.” 

"A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet." 

“If you want a happy ending, it depends on where you stop the story"
