John Huston

To me the ideal film—which I’ve never succeeded in making—would be as though the reel were behind one’s eyes and you were projecting it yourself, seeing what you wish to see. This has a great deal in common with thought processes … That’s why I think the camera is an eye as well as a mind. Everything we do with the camera has physiological and mental significance.

—John Huston
