Famous quotes containing the word cinema:

    Photography is truth. The cinema is truth twenty-four times per second.
    Jean-Luc Godard (b. 1930)

    Strangers used to gather together at the cinema and sit together in the dark, like Ancient Greeks participating in the mysteries, dreaming the same dream in unison.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    The cinema is not an art which films life: the cinema is something between art and life. Unlike painting and literature, the cinema both gives to life and takes from it, and I try to render this concept in my films. Literature and painting both exist as art from the very start; the cinema doesn’t.
    Jean-Luc Godard (b. 1930)
