If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything. – Mark Twain

Documentary and/or narrative…

Cinema is the truth at 24 fps. – Jean Luc Godard

Cinema lies at 24fps. – Brian De Palma

The truth is in the lie. – Picasso

Sometimes you’ve got to lie to tell the truth. – Jonathan Swift

The main difference between a cat and a lie is that a cat only has nine lives. – Mark Twain

Is complicated…

and in the end…

“When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.” – James Stewart as Ransom Stoddard in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence (screenplay by James Warner Bellah and Willis Goldbeck; based a story by Dorothy M. Johnson)

Of course there’s conscious manipulation! Everything about a movie is manipulation … If you like it, it’s an interpretation. If you don’t like it, it’s a lie—but everything about [the] movies is a distortion. – Frederick Wiseman

“[T]he Devil whoops, as he whooped of old: “It’s clever, but is it Art?”               – Rudyard Kipling
