Atom Egoyan“This idea of clarity and that people should know at all times what’s going on is obviously very attractive from a marketing perspective, but I think it would completely eviscerate the power of what these movies are about… We are still discussing what the opening sequence in Persona might mean and the wealth of possibilities that can be read into this piece of work. I believe that’s why it endures.” –Atom Egoyan
