Alan Parker's quotes
- I was once described by one of my critics as an aesthetic fascist.
- I'm always afraid someone's going to tap me on the shoulder one day and say, "Back to North London".
- Every time I've been to Cannes, I've made up my mind never to return. Every time my vanity wins over.
- [in a January 1988 interview] It's not my job to make you comfortable in the cinema.
- Movies are an artistic expression which communicates viscerally.
- Great cinema is as much about ideas and possibilities as it is about facts. The mixing of the objective and subjective can be a lethal cocktail in storytelling - but it's not always to everyone's taste.
