David Cronenberg – The art of horror

Share this quote:
David CronenbergI think of horror films as art, as films of confrontation. Films that make you confront aspects of your own life that are difficult to face. Just because you are making a horror film doesn’t mean you can’t make an artful film.

David Cronenberg – Art is irresponsible

Share this quote:
David CronenbergAs a citizen, of course. As a parent, of course. But as an artist, that’s where the paradox is — your responsibility is to be irresponsible. As soon as you talk about political or social responsibility, you’ve amputated the best limbs you’ve got as an artist.

David Cronenberg – Depth in movie-making

Share this quote:
David CronenbergFor me, it’s a full, full experience to make a movie. It takes a lot of time, and I want there to be a lot of stuff in it. You’re looking for every shot in the movie to have resonance and want it to be something you can see a second time, and then I’d like it to be something you can see 10 years later, and it becomes a different movie, because you’re a different person. So that means I want it to be deep, not in a pretentious way, but I guess I can say I am pretentious in that I pretend. I have aspirations that the movie should trigger off a lot of complex responses.
