“As soon as we cross the door [of a movie theater], one and a half hour of our life is inevitably gone. That time will never come back. Imagine what is the responsability of a filmmaker in front of those who will lose one hour and a half of their life to see his work!”
— Alexander Sokurov, Interviewed by Antoine de Baecque and Olivier Joyard, Cahiers du cinéma, Janv. 1998
