Highest Grossing Film

Famous quotes containing the words highest and/or film:

    There are some things which a man never speaks of, which are much finer kept silent about. To the highest communications we only lend a silent ear.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Television does not dominate or insist, as movies do. It is not sensational, but taken for granted. Insistence would destroy it, for its message is so dire that it relies on being the background drone that counters silence. For most of us, it is something turned on and off as we would the light. It is a service, not a luxury or a thing of choice.
    David Thomson, U.S. film historian. America in the Dark: The Impact of Hollywood Films on American Culture, ch. 8, William Morrow (1977)
