Quotes

Himself (Narrator: Actually when I was a little younger,there was another journey I wanted to make, It was a relgious one. I wanted to be a priest. However, I soon realized that my real vocation, my real calling, was the movies. I don't really see a conflit between the church and movies - the sacred and the profane. Obviously there are many differences, but I also could see great similarities bwtween a church and a movie house. Both are places for people to come together and share a common experience. and I believe there's spirituality in films even if it's not one which can supplant faith.
