No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.
– Ingmar Bergman
Tonight as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences honors the biggest stars of the silver screen in 2013, I wanted to share this thought from the Swedish master filmmaker with you. I hope that you were able to see some of the great films of 2013. I hope that some of the performances you have seen moved you to the deepest parts of yourself. Film is an exceptionally affecting medium. Viva le film!
