Alex Winter's quotes

  • Hitchcock had to fight to the death to make his movies.
  • I just like movies that somehow expose the world in a way that's different than you imagine it.
  • I get very driven by certain themes and ideas.
  • Certain remakes are great. [John] Carpenter's The Thing (1982) is better than the original.
  • My favorite favorites are people like Bunuel, Fellini and Charlie Chaplin.
  • But it is funny, because I saw Unbreakable recently and it's a strange movie, I didn't mind it, and it's got some interesting things going on.
  • Coppola has problems getting financing, so why should I not have problems getting financing.
  • I direct a lot of TV commercials and music videos.
  • I really love sort of classical cinema where people were telling stories with very little dialogue, and people were using the camera in a really interesting way.
  • I actually did use to sell shoes.
  • I think movies are good for getting into dream states or exploring weird alternate states of thinking.
  • I'm not trying to be some kind of underground renegade.
  • I'm one of the few people who really like Eyes Wide Shut (1999).
  • I take a lot from everywhere. I take from music, architecture, novels, and plays. Anywhere that hits you.
  • I think filmmakers want their movies to be seen.
  • Same thing, like my commercials are often times really funny because I tend to find 30 seconds is a really good amount of time to tell a joke.
  • It's hard for a hit to be bad for your career.
  • I'm really influenced by so many different things.
  • After living in LA for 8 years, I sort of wanted a change, but there's not much production in New York, which is where I primarily live, so I just sort of drifted over to London.
  • They're innocent movies, and they're fun movies and there were no pretensions about 'em.
  • The thing about movies these days is that the commerce end of it is so inflated and financiers are just expecting this enormous return on their investment.
  • That's kind of the weird thing that M. Night Shyamalan has sort of unleashed upon the world is this need for every movie to have these ridiculous endings.
  • I'm not saying it isn't frustrating that my films haven't gotten a bigger release, but I'm really happy with them and if you just keep cranking and eventually, if you have a certain sensibility, some of your movies will hit and some just won't.
  • Like I said about Freaked (1993), people tend to find these films, and I think that in the end the cool thing about a movie is that it can be sort of burnt temporarily, but then it's burnt into the fabric of your culture.
  • The film, even when we were making it in that budget range, which was really a coup - we got it made because we pitched it to the studio head, Joe Roth.
  • The thing is there have been American movies that are similar to Solaris (1972), like Alien (1979) had a lot of things that are similar, although it's also got the horror element.
  • With Fever (1999), the film was so made for the screen, and there's so much surround sound that was done for the film - enormous detail paid to that. I wasn't thinking video, because I didn't know how it was going to turn out.
  • The trick of making movies in this culture is how to not give up everything that makes them worthwhile in order to get them made - and that's a tricky balance.
