Quotes of David Russell

Американский кинорежиссер и сценарист

  • ⋅The present is a point just passed. /David Russell
  • ⋅I think any spiritual experience that's worthwhile is not about ego and it will humble you in some way. And also, a Zen monk once said to me, 'If you're not laughing, then you're not getting it.' /David Russell
  • ⋅I just love real characters; they're not pretentious, and every emotion is on the surface, they're regular working people. Their likes, their dislikes, their loves, their hates, their passions; they're all right there on the surface. /David Russell
  • ⋅I did a dance sequence in my second short film, which was my best short film, called 'Hairway to the Stars,' and I think Chris Wink, the founder of Blue Man Group, was in that. It's a black-and-white dance sequence. We were Glorious Food waiters together. /David Russell
  • ⋅I had various jobs, I taught a SAT class, I was a bartender, I had a day job at an office and was making short films. I got grants from NYSCA and NEA for an idea, which later became 'Huckabees,' about a guy in a Chinese restaurant who had microphones on every table and heard every personal conversation and would write perversely personal fortunes. /David Russell
  • ⋅I think I land somewhere between Scorsese and Capra in what I'm drawn to emotionally; I'm drawn to very intense emotion. Capra freaked people out when they saw Jimmy Stewart lose it in 'It's a Wonderful Life. /David Russell

  • ⋅I would say that when I came into this chapter of my filmmaking career, starting with 'The Fighter,' there was this sense that you have to go from your instincts and you have to go from your gut, and you have to not hesitate and you have to not hedge. /David Russell
  • ⋅I'm always looking for a way to surprise audiences. That's, I feel, my job as a director. I felt that Amy Adams playing a tough woman in 'The Fighter' was a surprise. People saw her as a princess. /David Russell
  • ⋅One of the things I've discovered at my age is I must have enchantment. And that was not clear to me in my earlier years. When I look at my favorite films, the Frank Capra - even Scorsese, even 'Goodfellas,' what makes that movie so remarkable is there's enchantment in their world. /David Russell
  • ⋅Some of Jimmy Stewart's performance in 'It's A Wonderful Life' is some of the most disturbing performance he ever did, when he falls apart and when he breaks down. /David Russell
  • ⋅The whole trick is to make it feel like you're spying on real people's lives as they get through the day. When I'm writing, I have to trick myself as a writer. If I consciously say, 'I'm writing,' I feel all this pressure and somehow it doesn't feel as real as when it doesn't seem to count as much. /David Russell
  • ⋅What do we have in life, really? If we're lucky we get to a certain age, and we have each other. We have the food we like. We have our crazy little rituals. And we have each other. /David Russell
  • ⋅When I write an email where I outlined a whole scene, it just came out of my unconscious, it comes from a deeper place. The same thing happens when the actors go, take after take, and just get lost in it. When you're in a house, you don't think about being in the house; you're just there. /David Russell
  • ⋅You know, veterans come home and they may not be bipolar, but after they've been through a war with PTSD or a head injury, their families have a handful when they come home. /David Russell
  • ⋅Anything you could ever want or be you already have and are. /David Russell
  • ⋅I got put on jury duty, which is where I learned how to write. /David Russell
  • ⋅I got a nomination for director, which means the world to me; it's just the most exciting thing for me and my family. You do the good hard work, and the rest of it is something you shouldn't get too caught up in, but when it happens - boy! I respect it. /David Russell
  • ⋅I think what makes compelling fiction or cinema is when you're basically taking the most intense moments of experience and you're creating a song or a narrative out of it. /David Russell
  • ⋅I was frustrated because I couldn't get going, as I was trying to figure out how to make films. I had various jobs, I taught a SAT class, I was a bartender, I had a day job at an office and was making short films. /David Russell
  • ⋅That's what takes people out of the fight half the time. They get hit and half the reaction is your ego is saying, 'I cannot believe that person just lit me up - how humiliating. /David Russell
  • ⋅The closer you stay to emotional authenticity and people, character authenticity, the less you can go wrong. That's how I feel now, no matter what you're doing. /David Russell
  • ⋅I feel profoundly blessed. I feel it's a great privilege to make any motion picture. /David Russell
  • ⋅There's nothing better than an actor who is really, really hungry to show everything they've got. /David Russell
  • ⋅The Fighter was about a family struggling to overcome and fighting each other sometimes, and I went back and rewrote this script which I had written for my son initially because my son has mood disorder. /David Russell

  • ⋅That's the most beautiful thing that I like about boxing: you can take a punch. The biggest thing about taking a punch is your ego reacts and there's no better spiritual lesson than trying to not pay attention to your ego's reaction. /David Russell
  • ⋅Just work on your craft hard - that's your only hope of doing anything worthwhile. /David Russell
  • ⋅You can't force a movie to happen. Movies happen when they're supposed to happen. Everything happens in God's time. I really believe that. /David Russell
  • ⋅The cinema that I make is a cinema about people, emotion, humanity and passion. It's not just about what they struggle through, but what they live for. That's what I love. The music they love, the people they love, the clothing, the hair and the life that they love /David Russell
  • ⋅The great lesson about filmmaking is never take "no" for an answer, especially if you have a lot of passion and inspiration to do something. /David Russell
  • ⋅You learn by trying and failing. Just a lot of hard work and mistakes. /David Russell

Women think that all men are equal, and this is their strength, men think all women are different - it destroys them.
