Famous quotes containing the words films and/or set:

    Science fiction films are not about science. They are about disaster, which is one of the oldest subjects of art.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    The dreariest spot in all the land
    To Death they set apart;
    With scanty grace from Nature’s hand,
    And none from that of Art.
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)
