Cinema is the most beautiful fraud in the world,

Cinema can fill in the empty spaces of your life and your loneliness,

Everybody has something that chews them up and, for me, that thing was always loneliness,

The cinema has the power to make you not feel lonely, even when you are,

Cinema is a matter of what's in the frame and what's out,

Cinema is a mirror by which we often see ourselves.

I think cinema, movies, and magic have always been closely associated, 

The very earliest people who made film were magicians,

Cinema is not only about making people dream, 

It's about changing things and making people think,

For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake,

Cinema should make you forget you are sitting in a theatre.

Cinema is not only about making people dream,

It's about changing things and making people think,

Talking about dreams is like talking about movies, 

Since the cinema uses the language of dreams, 

Years can pass in a second, 

You can hop from one place to another,

It's a language made of images,

And in the real cinema, every object and every light means something, as in a dream.

Every age has its storytelling form, and video gaming is a huge part of our culture,

You can ignore or embrace video games and imbue them with the best artistic quality,

People are enthralled with video games in the same way as other people love the cinema or theatre.

Cinema is a mirror that can change the world,

Cinema is a reflection of society and, in most cases, 

Has the ability to be a mirror and not just show the problems, 

But also give solutions and help them reach a large number of people through faces and voices that matter,

Every viewer is going to get a different thing,

That's the thing about painting, photography, cinema,

The notion of directing a film is the invention of critics,

The whole eloquence of cinema is achieved in the editing room.

A visit to a cinema is a little outing in itself,

It breaks the monotony of an afternoon or evening,

It gives a change from the surroundings of home, however pleasant,

Cinema is a reflection of its own society,

The Old Testament is responsible for more atheism, agnosticism, disbelief - call it what you will - than any book ever written,

It has emptied more churches than all the counter-attractions of cinema, motor-bicycle and golf course,

When I make a film, I am hoping to reinvent the genre a little bit,

I just do it my way,

I make my own little Christopher Nolan versions of them,

I consider myself a student of cinema, 

It's almost like I am going for my professorship in cinema, 

And the day I die is the day I graduate, 

It is a lifelong study.

I don't know anything about life, but everything about cinema,

Cinema is a world of imagination,

The appeal of cinema lies in the fear of death,

The whole aspect of cinema and film festivals should be a moment to come together and celebrate art and humanity,

It would be a shame if there was such a divide,

A cinema villain essentially needs a moustache,

So he can twiddle with it gleefully as he cooks up his next nasty plan,

Cinema is an art form, a result of the dedication of a number of people,

For me, cinema is a vice,

I love it intimately.

When people leave the theatre, they should remember a line, a character, a sequence or emotion,

With entertainment, I want to give meaningful cinema,

We shot 'Kashmir genocide' on film; we capture '1990 Kashmir' digitally,

In the shooting of 'The Kashmir Files,' we would have this steady, handheld, cinema verite sort of look, 

So we purposely went the opposite way with 'The Kashmir Files' - locked in the cameras and made the movements smoother and more mechanical.

I had a really hard time in childhood,

I was a nerd,

I was watching foreign cinema when I was 13 and talking about how 'Hope and Glory' should be a foreign film,

For me, the human face is the most important subject the cinema,

Photography is truth,

The cinema is truth twenty-four times per second.

Entertainment came out of this thing called a television, and it was grey,

Most of the films that we saw at the cinema were black and white,

It was a grey world,

And music somehow was in colour,

Cinema seats make people lazy,

They expect to be given all the information,

But for me, question marks are the punctuation of life,

Cinema was my rite of passage,

When I was 16, I felt very relieved to discover cinema,

It was like an island where I could see life and death from another perspective,

Every young person should be interested in that island,

It's a beautiful place.

Is the cinema more important than life?

Cinema builds memories,

Great films continue to exist in the spectator's mind,

We are naturally capable of and prone to nostalgia,

A spectator will reconstruct a film he or she has seen, years later, and may even change their original opinion, 

One critic, for example, once gave the finger to one of my films,

Later he wrote to me to apologize,

Cinema, radio, television, and magazines are a school of inattention,

People look without seeing, and listen in without hearing.

Folk tales, fairy tales, religion, the occult - these are the things I'm most passionate about, 

Even more than cinema,

And I'm very passionate about cinema,

Cinema is universal, beyond flags and borders and passports,

Narrative cinema is just an imitation of life, 

Why would you prevent yourself and the audience from the same images, 

Of the same that happened in real life?

Cinema is an art form that is designed to go across borders,

And as an aspiring filmmaker, the only way I can direct a movie is when I feel close to my culture,

Cinema is a medium that can translate ideas.
