Aphorism #4

“Film is a curious medium. If you have something to SAY, you can really SAY it well with film, and you can be as CLUMSY as you like.” – Attributed to Michelangelo Antonioni by Ingmar Bergman in a Swedish TV interview. Bergman adds, “You see there are some new directors in Sweden who are well trained, they know their job well. But they have nothing to SAY!”
Maybe the techno-nazi puritans have something to learn from this?
