He was the first to conceive of movies as an art form. His belief was that if the traditional art form would not find room for him, then he would make an art form of his own.
|in movie quotes by Richard Schickel|
Perhaps... I mean there are people who defend that it as an art. I do not. I like it but it's not an art form as far as I am concerned, and yet it's a similar thing, once you can't land those jumps, you are disqualified - that precludes it from ever becoming a serious art form. - Mark Morris
