All pleasure is tension and release.

There are two types of people in the world: those who divide things into two and those who don’t

A play (movie) begins when a world in an uneasy state of equilibrium is broken into by an event.

Our personal narratives are constructed of narratives. Our consciousness is a collection of narratives.

Myths are public dreams; dreams are private myths.

(Poetic Faith) “the willing suspension of disbelief” – Samuel Taylor Coleridge

With a documentary, the willing suspension of disbelief is that we are not suspending our disbelief.

Theatre is once. Film is ”forever”.

All narratives exist in three times: the time they are about; the time they are authored; the present time of the audience watching NOW.

Acting is telling the truth with a straight face.

The fundamental relationship on stage is actor-audience. In film, it is actor-camera.

Theatre is space, film is shadows.

There is a difference between soccer and baseball, between action and excitement.

Too much of a good thing is a bad thing.

“You can’t have a light without a dark to stick it in” – Arlo Guthrie

“Tell all the Truth but tell it slant—
Success in Circuit lies.
” — Emily Dickenson



  1. ‘Acting is telling the truth with a straight face’- reminds me of theatre. missing it very much. can this be somehow applied to film as well??? it can right? telling the truth through film

  2. I love the quote “Theater is once. Film is “forever” ” 🙂
    At same point this make me remind me of the saddness that all the great theaters are only there for once and if I miss the chance,it can never be seen,but happy in a way that film will be there for forever,and withing generation to generation people get to watch it!

  3. Too much of a good thing is a bad thing.
    I really like this quote! It is so true and it applies to everybody and everything…:)

  4. rave on Dr. Rey – great stuff here – it is provoking – what we all need….bowing to you
