And when I read something from a father whose kid was gone, he said that the most maddening part of the whole thing is the powerlessness of the parent, knowing that the child is waiting for you and can't understand why you're not there, every second of every day. The idea of sleep or rest is impossible.” - Hugh Jackman on preparing to play "Keller Dover" in “Prisoners” (2013), by Denis Villeneuve

Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night, Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” — “Interstellar” (2014) by Christopher Nolan I haven’t talked about or posted this film for a long time since I’ve been focusing more on foreign language films. Looking forward to talk about some gems that have changed my life. It’s time to give Interstellar a re-watch. What do you think of it and how would you rate it?

However, he wasn't just interested in this story's connection to the most recent collapse on Wall Street, he was also attracted to Jordan's honest and uncompromising portrayal of what he actually experienced. — “The Wolf of Wall Street” (2013) by Martin Scorsese

Your mind, your body, your spirit are not in any way prepared to accept that this experience is coming to an end. In the months that follow the finish of a film, you feel profound emptiness. You've devoted so much of your time to unleashing, in an unconscious way, some sort of spiritual turmoil, and even if it's uncomfortable, no part of you wishes to leave that character behind. The sense of bereavement is such that it can take years before you can put it to rest.” - Daniel Day-Lewis on disengaging from a character after filming - Photo: Bill “The Butcher” Cutting, “Gangs of New York” by Martin Scorsese

This has been attributed to Cuarón's dislike for expository film: "There's a kind of cinema I detest, which is a cinema that is about exposition and explanations." He once said. "It's become a medium for lazy readers. Cinema is a hostage of narrative. And I'm very good at narrative as a hostage of cinema." — “Children of Men” (2006) by Alfonso Cuarón
