CURRENT FAVOURITE QUOTES
“I think it’s terribly dangerous for an artist to fulfill other people’s expectations. They generally produce their worst work when they do that.” – David Bowie

“When you finish anything, people want you to then talk about it. And I think it’s almost like a crime. A film or a painting – each thing is its own sort of language and it’s not right to try to say the same thing in words. The words are not there. The language of film, cinema, is the language it was put into, and the English language – it’s not going to translate. It’s going to lose.” – David Lynch
