"I don't want to produce a work of art that the public can sit and suck aesthetically. I want to
give them a blow in the small of the back, to scorch their indifference, to startle them
out of their complacency." — Ingmar Bergman

"I have always admired [Bergman], and I wish I could be an equally good filmmaker as he is, but it will
never happen. His love for the cinema almost gives me a guilty conscience." — Steven Spielberg
