Francis Ford Coppola in conversation with Adam Nayman in the Fall 2009 issue of Cinema Scope:
"I don't want a career. I had one and I gave it up. I'm just an amateur. I do it for the love of it... At my age, I can afford for film to be a passion and not a business. I approach it with respect, and with the knowledge of how lucky I am to be able to express myself in this beautiful art form that is so young that it still requires experimentation to learn about it. I want to learn about it."
Some thoughts for the New Year. Lets learn.
