Quotes by and about Max Landis

(Continued from his main entry on the site.)

Landis: "[A movie should have] clear intent [and] always forward momentum."

Landis: "[That a script is] fun to read is really the most important thing."

[Asked if he is a cineaste:]
Landis: "I love movies. It's funny because I'm not a cinephile - I know a lot of people ... who know more about movies than I [do, but] I haven't met many people who've seen more movies than I have. I obsessively watch movies, but a problem is that you say Ingmar Bergman and I go, 'Uh, yeah, I know who that is...' I couldn't name one Ingmar Bergman movie. I bet I've seen most of them."

Landis: "When I was little, I had a lot of ... ideas for what I was going to be. There was a point when I thought I was going to be a veterinarian, and then I found out that they had to study a lot. And there was a point where I thought I was going to be an explorer, and then I found out that they already found everything."
