Kurosawa, Tarkovsky, cinema

"Cinema is not a suitable medium for explanation. Those who view it must be left free to sense its content. It should be open to a variety of interpretations."
- Akira Kurosawa, on Andrei Tarkovsky

"There can be no bright future for those who are ready to explain everything about their own film."
- Tarkovsky and Solaris by Akira Kurosawa

via (and by way of belated response to) killing in tarkovsky & kurosawa

apologies for the lack of new original content on my part; I'm hoping to once again hit the keys soon.
