Woody Allen: “… probably the greatest film artist, all things considered, since the invention of the motion picture camera.”
Francois Ford Coppola: “My all-time favourite because he embodies passion, emotion and has warmth.”
Steven Spielberg: “His love for the cinema almost gives me a guilty conscience.”
Stanley Kubrick: “I believe Ingmar Bergman, Vittorio De Sica and Federico Fellini are the only three filmmakers in the world who are not just artistic opportunists. By this I mean they don’t just sit and wait for a good story to come along and then make it. They have a point of view which is expressed over and over and over again in their films, and they write or have original material written for them.”
