‘I suppose all art is an invitation to another space, but maybe none opens the door so wide as cinema, lets you hear the music and offers you a drink. In the existential immediacy of its unmediated capacity to put us into someone else’s shoes, to time­travel us, to shape­shift us, to place us inside a consciousness other than our own, cinema rules, in my view. Great cinema – pure cinema – takes us to the planet to which poetry’s ticket can only promise us passage.’
