“Most kids use movies [to escape the noisy, contentious worlds of our families and friends]— or at least they did that a half century and more ago. But only a relatively small number of the develop the passion for them that we shared. We know movies in our bones. We can discuss them by the hour, often enough, in shot-by-shot detail. We continue to go back to them again and again. We refer to them constantly in our work. And, naturally, in our conversations. They provide the central metaphors— hundreds of them— for our lives.”

- Martin Scorsese, Scorsese by Ebert
