Born On This Day – February 10, 1961

Alexander Payne

“One of cinema’s greatest uses or values lies not just in its ability to capture reality, but to capture or suggest dreams. And silent films excelled from the start in fully embracing the weirdness of real life and dream and how the two can be combined into a story, the likes of which I think, we’ve not seen in the talkies – a fuller, weirder totality of human experience.” –Alexander Payne
