Zitat des Tages von Andrea Arnold:
People ask, 'Are your things autobiographical?,' and I think, no, they're not autobiographical directly, but of course my life has informed my work.
I am obsessed with why people turn out the way they are.
Once I've finished a film I just want to get on and make another one.
Dramatically, I like darkness, I like conflict - but I don't see the world as defined by them.
Whenever I get fed up with life I love to go wandering in nature.
A lot of people have something to say about 'Wuthering Heights,' but nobody quite nails it.
I work best when there is adversity: I seem to get calmer the more the fur is flying.
With a lot of films, people are sitting on the outside looking in, but I want the audience to get a bit more intimately involved with what's going on, so that they maybe can experience it a little bit more intensely.
I don't think you can question your instinct; you should always trust it.
I try and be truthful.
I love insects. They are amazing.
You learn on every film so much.
I deliberately never read about films before I see them.
I was 18 when I got my first TV job.
Obviously when you cast someone who hasn't acted before it can be a massive opportunity for them.
I was a freestyle dancer; I wasn't trained.
I'm much happier behind the camera.
I can't remember why or how I started writing, but I think it was always a way of making sense of the world.
For me, making films is about trying to work something out by myself in quite a lonely way. I find the whole thing very lonely really.
I've got no education.
I normally go with the flow.
I definitely feel sorry more people don't get to see my films. They aren't inaccessible, and if people got the chance to see them, I know they'd like them.
Usually, I make such small-budget films that I can't afford to buy weather.
Every time I start a film I feel like I'm starting the first time, ever.
I want to try and be instinctive as a writer and director.
