Frasi Roman Polanski

„It's already getting more and more difficult to make an ambitious and original film.“

—  Roman Polanski
Context: It's already getting more and more difficult to make an ambitious and original film. There are less and less independent producers or independent companies and an increasing number of corporations who are more interested in balance sheets than in artistic achievement. They want to make a killing each time they produce a film. They're only interested in the lowest common denominator because they're trying to reach the widest audience. And you got some kind of entropy. That's the danger; they look more alike, those films. The style is all melting and it all looks the same. Even young directors — for most of them, their only standard of achievement is how well their films do on the first weekend or whatever. It worries me. But then, from time to time, you have a film like The Usual Suspects or.... I'm trying to think of something American with some kind of originality... Pulp Fiction.

„She was the least hypocritical woman you could ever meet“

—  Roman Polanski
Context: She was the least hypocritical woman you could ever meet: once, when an executive told her that we should ask for single cabins in the transatlantic that brought us to the United States, she simply said, "Why? Everybody knows that we live together." Interview in Telecran magazine (25 January 1970)

„People like Truffaut, Lelouch and Godard are like little kids playing at being revolutionaries. I've passed through this stage.“

—  Roman Polanski
Context: People like Truffaut, Lelouch and Godard are like little kids playing at being revolutionaries. I've passed through this stage. I lived in a country where these things happened seriously.

„If you continue to hate, you are entering into the same philosophy that began the war. You have to look forward at people and new times.“

—  Roman Polanski
Context: Berlin was great. It’s a new generation. If you continue to hate, you are entering into the same philosophy that began the war. You have to look forward at people and new times. "The Pianist Interview" by Marilyn Cole Lownes http://minadream.com/romanpolanski/ThePianistInterview.htm

„I'm forced to mix with people of this industry and I can swear that is really difficult to meet people with her nature and her spirit.“

—  Roman Polanski
Context: I'm forced to mix with people of this industry and I can swear that is really difficult to meet people with her nature and her spirit. Generally, everybody is opportunistic here. Sharon had grace and charm; she knew how to make anybody's life easier. When somebody was busy, she was there in a discreet manner to serve you a drink or a coffee. Interview in Telecran magazine (25 January 1970)

„You know, whenever you do something new and original, people run to see it because it's different. Then, if it happens to be successful, the studios rush to imitate it. It becomes commonplace right away. But it's been like that before, I think. Now, the stakes are so gigantic that they cut each other's throats.“

It becomes commonplace right away. But it's been like that before, I think. Now, the stakes are so gigantic that they cut each other's throats. So if most of the films are failures, then those that succeed so spectacularly, so commercially, become the norm. It's like a roulette for the studios. The problem with it is that it becomes more and more of a committee. Before, you dealt with the studio. It had one or two persons and now you have masses of executives who have to justify their existence and write so-called "creative notes" and have creative meetings. They obsess about the word creative probably because they aren't. "Roman Polanski: An Exclusive Interview" by Taylor Montague

„You have to show violence the way it is. If you don't show it realistically, then that's immoral and harmful. If you don't upset people, then that's obscenity.“
