    François Truffaut

    Jacques Rivette

    on James Cameron and Steven Spielberg: "Cameron isn’t evil, he’s not an *beep* like Spielberg. He wants to be the new De Mille. Unfortunately, he can’t direct his way out of a paper bag."

    Kevin Smith

    on Paul Thomas Anderson and his film 'Magnolia': "I’ll never watch it again, but I will keep it. I’ll keep it right on my desk, as a constant reminder that a bloated sense of self-importance is the most unattractive quality in a person or their work."

    Ken Russell

    on Richard Attenborough: "Sir Richard (‘I’m-going-to-attack-the-Establishment-fifty-years-after-it’s-dead’) Attenborough is guilty of caricature, a sense of righteous self-satisfaction, and repetition which all undermine the impact of the film."

    Michael Haneke

    "I remember when Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" came out, and I was sitting in a matinee filled with young people. The famous scene of a boy's head being blown off caused a huge commotion in the theater. They thought it was great and they almost died laughing. I was upset because I think it's irresponsible."

    Vincent Gallo

    on Spike Jonze: "He's the biggest fraud out there. If you bring him to a party he's the least interesting person at the party, he's the person who doesn't know anything. He’s the person who doesn't say anything funny, interesting, intelligent… He’s a pig piece of *beep*

    Vincent Gallo

    "I wouldn’t work for Martin Scorsese for $10 million. He hasn’t made a good film in 25 years. I would never work with an egomaniac has-been."

    Spike Lee

    on Tyler Perry: "We got a black president, and we going back to Mantan Moreland and Sleep ‘n’ Eat?"

    Jean-Luc Godard

    on Steven Spielberg: "I don’t know him personally. I don’t think his films are very good."

    Orson Welles

    on Jean-Luc Godard: "His gifts as a director are enormous. I just can’t take him very seriously as a thinker — and that’s where we seem to differ, because he does. His message is what he cares about these days, and, like most movie messages, it could be written on the head of a pin."

    Peter Hyams

    on Ted Kotcheff: "Up his with a French Horn."

    Nick Broomfield

    on Quentin Tarantino: "It’s like watching a schoolboy’s fantasy of violence and sex, which normally Quentin Tarantino would be wanking alone to in his bedroom while this mother is making his baked beans downstairs. Only this time he’s got Harvey Weinstein behind him and it’s on at a million screens."
