Isidore Isou
Radio through television becomes a species of Cinema. Why shouldn't Cinema, in turn, become a species of radio?
Isou quotes
From the point of view of photography, I'll smite the picture with sun rays. I'll take old stock shots and scratch them; I'll claw at them so that unknown beauty sees the light of day. I shall sculpt flowers upon the film stock.
Isou
Our only means of original manifestation is to vomit these old masterpieces. Masterful spittle is our only opportunity to create within the Cinema our masterpieces. That's what Picasso stands for. He is a creator of deglutition and spittle, of old well-digested canvases.




Isou Isidore quotes
The Cinema is too rich; it is obese.
Isou Isidore
In my pictures I would use speech as an extra dimension supplementing the image ... Speech would not come off the screen in coincidence with the sequences, but from without, as if it were a surplus unconnected with the organism - a cravat of drivel hung on an ivory tooth.
Isidore Isou quotes
I desire you, and all that comes with you. If I could only buy you and enjoy you, without having to go through all the formalities, without having to consider your personality et cetera ... There is nothing as boring as human personality
Isidore Isou
It is said that the public is stupid. That's why those who hold it in contempt never dare to offer it something original.
Isou Isidore quotes
There is no "worst" in what is new. Everything that has existed is bad, or else no one would have improved upon it by revolution and change.
Isou
There are so many films from which one leaves as stupid as one entered. I'd rather give you a migraine than nothing at all ... I'd rather ruin your eyes than leave you indifferent.
