NY Review of Books:

The Persisting Vision: Reading the Language of Cinema

Martin Scorcese

“Young people need to understand that not all images are there to be consumed like fast food and then forgotten–we need to educate them to understand the difference between moving images that engage their humanity and their intelligence, and moving images that are just selling them something.”

“You see the world through your own time–which means that some values disappear, and some values come into closer focus. Same film, same images, but in the case of a great film the power–a timeless power that really can’t be articulated–is there even when the context has completely changed.”
