Quotes

Film and Mythology

"I haven’t seen a movie for something like fifteen years, and I can’t speak from my own experience or judgment, but I think that the movie is the perfect medium for mythological messages. The medium is so plastic and pliable and magic things can happen.

That’s a mythological realm, and movies could handle this kind of thing."
Joseph Campbell, with Michael Toms, “The Wisdom of Joseph Campbell,” Mythic Dimensions (1997), Tape 3, Side 1
