A film is — or should be — more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
The great nations have always acted like gangsters, and the small nations like prostitutes.
The truth of a thing is the feel of it, not the think of it.
The greatest nations have all acted like gangsters and the smallest like prostitutes.
