I guess that I will always have to be aware of the fact that while there are times I can’t live with him, I also know that it would be difficult to live without him. I’ve left him many times before and always swore that I’d never consider a reconciliation. But then somehow one of us would make the first move—I think, really, it was always I who did—and then we’d be in each other’s arms wondering how in the world we could ever have drifted apart and promising never ever to let it happen again…Sometimes I wish he really were a cruel person or an impossible person. It would be easy then to make one final decision. Get out and stay out. But Dean is a wonderful human being and you can’t help loving him even while you’re in the middle of one of your ‘I hate him’ moods.
“The cinema began with a passionate, physical relationship between celluloid and the artists and craftsmen and technicians who handled it, manipulated it, and came to know it the way a lover comes to know every inch of the body of the beloved. No matter where the cinema goes, we cannot afford to lose sight of its beginnings.” - Martin Scorsese
