Filmmaking 101, Vol. IV

Wilder on the set of Double Indemnity

"A director must be a policeman, a midwife, a psychoanalyst, a sycophant and a bastard." - Billy Wilder

Wilder was one of the great filmmakers of all time (the noir classic Double Indemnity is one of my favourite films), probably because he clearly understood exactly what it took to be a director.
