Sidney Lumet in his own words


"Finally, movies are art....the amount of attention paid to movies is directly related to pictures of quality.....my job is to care about and be responsible for every frame of every movie I make.  I know that all over the world there are young people borrowing from relatives and saving their allowances to buy their first cameras and put together their first student movies, some of them dreaming of becoming famous and making a fortune.  But few are dreaming of finding out what matters to them, of saying to themselves and to anyone who will listen. "I care".  A few of them want to make good movies."

Very succinct, a nice quote. There is a reason behind his masterful film creation.
