Famous quotes containing the words silent and/or film:

    It is time that beats in the breast and it is time
    That batters against the mind, silent and proud,
    The mind that knows it is destroyed by time.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The woman’s world ... is shown as a series of limited spaces, with the woman struggling to get free of them. The struggle is what the film is about; what is struggled against is the limited space itself. Consequently, to make its point, the film has to deny itself and suggest it was the struggle that was wrong, not the space.
    Jeanine Basinger (b. 1936)
