More From Alexander Payne
- "The novel succeeds on terms exclusive to literature. A good film succeeds on terms exclusive to the cinema. That’s why so many bad novels can become good movies, like ‘Jaws’ or ‘The Godfather.’"
- "I mean, look, I love movies, not just the ones I make… In fact, I don’t like the movies I make very much."
- "You just never know when you’re living in a golden age."
More In Positive
- "Your best creative assets do not occur unless you do a mental shift. You have to be in a positive frame of mind because inspiration is fleeting. I walk to work for inspiration and to clear my mind."― Ron Ben-Israel
- "I am conscious of my inability to grasp, in all its details and positive developments, any very large portion of human knowledge."― Mikhail Bakunin
- "I look to longevity. I just consider myself an actress and getting good roles. If being a ‘superstar’ gets me good roles, then that’s a positive thing. But my goal isn’t just to be a superstar. It’s to act for a long time."― Penelope Ann Miller
