I’m tired… I’m so fucking tired. I thought I just needed a night’s sleep, but it’s more than that. But thank you, for trying. I love you.

"Leave me alone now, Theo."
Absolutely loved this shot that lingered on Chiwetel Ejiofor, he told so much with just his face. Part of the reason I love cinema so much is because words can be very limiting, some things are beyond description with print or through language, cinema can capture these moments, a look can say so much more than words ever could.
Film is way different. When you’re twenty feet tall on a massive screen and you’re seeing people’s lives played out on it, it’s different from a nice painting. Film is important; it can be more than reportage or a novel—it creates images people have never seen before, never imagined they’d see, maybe because they needed someone else to imagine them.
~ Steve McQueen

"I once had a dream, or a vision, and I imagined that dream to be of importance to other people, so I wrote the manuscript and made the film. But it is not until the moment when my dream meets with your emotions and your minds that my shadows come to life. It is your recognition that brings them to life. It is your indifference that kills them. I hope that you will understand; that you when you leave the cinema will take with you an experience or a sudden thought—or maybe a question. The efforts of my friends and myself have then not been in vain…" — Ingmar Bergman
This may be my favourite thing I’ve seen on tumblr.
