“My filmmaking education consisted of finding out what filmmakers I liked were watching, and then seeing those films. I learned the technical stuff from books and magazines, and with the new technology you can watch entire movies accompanied by commentary from the director. You can learn more from John Sturges‘ audio track on the Bad Day at Black Rock laser disc than you can in four years of film school. Film school is a complete con because the information is there if you want it.” — Paul Thomas Anderson, obviously speaking some time during the mid ’90s.
