Quote of the Day: Martin Scorcese on the Difference Between a Film “Looking” and “Feeling” Real

Film

"The African Queen" location

“As a child, I remember watching [The African Queen] and knowing from the images that they actually went there.  This is an ongoing theme in this book, which reflects a moment in film history that may sadly be over now.   You had the sense of the people behind the film caring for and respecting the audience enough to go to real locations, to make the film feel real as opposed to merely look real (that you can do with digital technology).”

– Martin Scorcese in the introduction to cinematographer Jack Cardiff’s memoir Magic Hour (1996)
