Everything outside of our dimension, that’s eternity. Eternity looking down on us. Now to us, it’s a sphere. But to them, it’s a circle.

True Detective (2014) created by Nic Pizzolatto.

Cinema is a language. It can say things-big, abstract things. And I love that about it.    I’m not always good with words. Some people are poets and have a beautiful way of saying things with words. But cinema is its own language. And with it you can say so many things, because you’ve got time and sequences. You’ve got dialogue. You’ve got music. You’ve got sound effects. You have so many tools. And you can express a feeling and a thought that can’t be conveyed any other way. Its a magical medium.    For me, it’s so beautiful to think about these pictures and sounds flowing together in time and in sequence, making something that can be done only through cinema. Its not just words or music-it’s a whole range of elements coming together and making something that didn’t exist before. It’s telling stories. It’s devising a world, an experience, that people cannot have unless they see that film.    When I catch an idea for a film, I fall in love with the way cinema can express it.    I like a story that holds abstractions, and that’s what cinema can do.

Falling in love is a crazy thing to do, it’s kind of like a socially acceptable form of insanity.
