Movies are not novels ….

Movies are not novels, and that’s why, when filmmakers try to adapt novels, particularly long or complex novels, the result is almost failure. It can’t be done.

~Paul Auster


Why should people go out and pay money to see bad films when they can stay at home and see bad television for nothing?

Samuel Goldwyn

You know those days when you’ve got the mean reds… – Truman Capote / Breakfast at Tiffany’s

You know those days when you’ve got the mean reds…the blues are because you’re getting fat or maybe its been raining too long. You’re sad, that’s all. But the mean reds are horrible. You’re afraid and you sweat like hell, but you don’t know what you are afraid of. Except something bad is going to happen, only you don’t know what it is.

– Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, 1958, spoken by the character Holly Golightly
