Una filosofía de cine
The pursuit of making money is the only reason to make movies.
We have no obligation to make history. We have no obligation to make art. We have no obligation to make a statement. Our obligation is to make money, and to make money, it may be necessary to make "history". To make money, it may be important to make "art", or some significant "*statement". To make money, it may be important to win the Academy Award, for it might mean another ten million dollars at the box office. Our only objective is to make money, but in order to make money, we must always make entertaining movies.
Don Simpson (1943-1996), productor de Top Gun, Dos policías rebeldes o La Roca.
