Wisdom from Filmmaker Brian De Palma

...but motion pictures are a kinetic art form; you're dealing with motion and sometimes that can be violent motion. There are very few art forms that let you deal with things in motion and that's why Westerns and chases and shoot-outs and killings crop up in film. They require one of the elements intrinsic to film: motion.


But there's a difference between being the marionette and being the puppet master. One is a director because one wants to be the master.
