"To be only spectacular should be 5 or 10 percent of cinema."
Godard quotes
The cinema is not an art which films life: the cinema is something between art and life. Unlike painting and literature, the cinema both gives to life and takes from it, and I try to render this concept in my films. Literature and painting both exist as art from the very start; the cinema doesnít.
Godard
"I would never see a good movie for the first time on television."




Godard Jean-Luc quotes
"...the movie is not a thing which is taken by the camera; the movie is the reality of the movie moving from reality to the camera."
Godard Jean-Luc
To me style is just the outside of content, and content the inside of style, like the outside and the inside of the human bodyóboth go together, they canít be separated.
Jean-Luc Godard quotes
"Movies in Hollywood now, for the past 20 or 30 years, are made mainly by lawyers or agents."
Jean-Luc Godard
Art attracts us only by what it reveals of our most secret self.
Godard Jean-Luc quotes
"American pictures usually have no subject, only a story. A pretty woman is not a subject. Julia Roberts doing this and that is not a subject."
Godard
All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl.
Godard Jean-Luc
Photography is truth. The cinema is truth twenty-four times per second.
Jean-Luc Godard
"In films, we are trained by the American way of moviemaking to think we must understand and 'get' everything right away. But this is not possible. When you eat a potato, you don't understand each atom of the potato!"




Jean-Luc Godard quotes
Beauty is composed of an eternal, invariable element whose quantity is extremely difficult to determine, and a relative element which might be, either by turns or all at once, period, fashion, moral, passion.
Jean-Luc Godard
The truth is that there is no terror untempered by some great moral idea.
