Alan Bennett
“To her, though, nothing could have been more serious, and she felt about reading what some writers felt about writing: that it was impossible not to do it and that at this late stage of her life she had been chosen to read as others were chosen to write.”
Alan Bennett, The Uncommon Reader

Grant Horner
“No evil equals no plot equals no movie equals no money. Thus the paradox: while we convince ourselves we are good (or at least not depraved), our most powerful art form is built upon the revelation that this is a lie.”
Grant Horner, Meaning at the Movies: Becoming a Discerning Viewer

Douglas Coupland
“It’s so hard to balance in our minds the knowledge that ‘the world’ is mundanely ‘a planet.’ The former is so holy; the latter merely a science project.”
Douglas Coupland, Hey Nostradamus!

Grant Horner
“The consummation of a revelation is always dependent upon its genesis.”
Grant Horner, Meaning at the Movies: Becoming a Discerning Viewer
