"Cinema is the only art that operates with the concept of time. Not because of its developing in time, because so does music and theater and ballet and other artforms.
I mean time in the literal sense. After all, what is a take? From when we say: ‘Action!’ To when we end by saying ‘cut’, what is happening?
It is the fixing of reality, the fixing of time. The conservation of time - for us to keep forever.
No other art form can fix time except cinema. So film is a mosaic of time… all three have dialogue.”
