Born On This Day – August 29, 1939

William Friedkin - The Exorcist

“Today, movies are as visual as they’ve ever been, but they don’t make any sense! They’ve got no heart, very little story. The dialogue is very often a little bit above a grunt… now, for the most part, people just stare at the screen for two hours and it’s like opium for the eyes and you’re not moved at all… it’s an escape from reality.” –William Friedkin
