Movie Quote of the Day – Murder by Numbers, 2002 (dir. Barbet Schroeder)

Movie Quote of the Day – The Dreamers, 2003 (dir. Bernardo Bertolucci)

Matthew: I read it in Cahiers du Cinéma. “A filmmaker is like a Peeping Tom.” A voyeur. It’s as if the camera is a the keyhole to your parents’ bedroom. And you spy on them, and you’re disgusted. You feel guilty but you can’t. . .you can’t look away. It makes films like crimes and directors like criminals. It should be illegal.
Theo: There goes my chance to be a filmmaker.
Matthew: Why?
Theo: My parents always left the bedroom door open.
