Film Critics Circle

Famous quotes containing the words film, critics and/or circle:

    Is America a land of God where saints abide for ever? Where golden fields spread fair and broad, where flows the crystal river? Certainly not flush with saints, and a good thing, too, for the saints sent buzzing into man’s ken now are but poor- mouthed ecclesiastical film stars and cliché-shouting publicity agents.
    Their little knowledge bringing them nearer to their ignorance,
    Ignorance bringing them nearer to death,
    But nearness to death no nearer to God.
    Sean O’Casey (1884–1964)

    Some have at first for wits, then poets passed,
    Turned critics next, and proved plain fools at last.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    Yes, thou art gone! and round me too the night
    In ever-nearing circle weaves her shade.
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)
