Neil Jordan's quotes

  • I'm fascinated by monsters [and] monstrous people and fascinated with illogic and irrationality.
  • Films are essentially attempts to disguise one's intentions, or state of mind. It's amazing, because there have been films I made that felt like they were opportunities to not be personal. But then, years later, it shocks me how revealing it is.
  • A film director is a person who rushes to make the decision before anyone else.
  • The country I come from - even the dogs bless themselves.
  • If you're Irish, you would say there's religion and dying. You wouldn't say that sex has anything to do with it.
  • I would have loved to have been a proficient musician. When I was a kid, I used to play classical guitar, and when I was about 24, 25, I used to play various thing - piano, saxophone. And I fell in love with Charlie Parker.
  • [on The Company of Wolves (1984)] It's a film about storytelling ... It's about the use of stories, and in the case of fairy tales, the main use is to teach young girls not to have sex with men, isn't it?
  • The Company of Wolves is about how society teaches young women to look at themselves, and what to be afraid of. It's about a girl learning that the world of sensuality and the unknown is not to be feared, that it's worth getting your teeth into.
