“[Adam picks up the camera] "I have to get a shot of this."

“Most of the movies are working like, 'Information, cut, information, cut, information, cut' and for them the information is just the story.

And I'm working on the same way - 'information, cut, information, cut,' but for me the information is not only the story.”

“Begitu santainya mengintip kini. Tak lagi ada was-was tepergok. Orang pun bisa memutar ulang apa yang diintip tiap kali dikehendaki. Intipan kini adalah komoditas.

Bulan pernah dengan agak malu menjadi salah satu di antara yang merubung itu. Kini akankah dia dan Panca yang dirubung pembeli di pinggir-pinggir jalan dan emper toko, dari Glodok hingga kota-kota lain di pelosok?”
