"I think we are at the very beginning of high changes, not only in terms of digital film, but in the way the movies will be screened, whether they'll be screened on phones, on computers - on everything."
"A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing."Michel Hazanavicius on Emo Philips
"Computers are like Old Testament gods lots of rules and no mercy."Michel Hazanavicius on Joseph Campbell
"I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image."Michel Hazanavicius on Stephen Hawking
"Computers are useless. They can only give you answers."Michel Hazanavicius on Pablo Picasso
"I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user."Michel Hazanavicius on Bill Gates
"I watched a lot of silent directors who were absolutely great like John Ford and Fritz Lang, Tod Browning, and also some very modern directors like The Coen Brothers. The directors take the freedom within their own movies to be melodramatic or funny when they chose to be. They do whatever they want and they don't care about the genre."
"I try to respect the rules of the silent movies and I tried to make signification to make sense, and also the crew were very good and the fact that we shot in LA in the real Hollywood, studios and houses. We shot in the bed of Mary Pickford, and you cannot be any more accurate than that, so that helped a lot."
