Famous quotes containing the words career and/or film:

    A black boxer’s career is the perfect metaphor for the career of a black male. Every day is like being in the gym, sparring with impersonal opponents as one faces the rudeness and hostility that a black male must confront in the United States, where he is the object of both fear and fascination.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)

    This film is apparently meaningless, but if it has any meaning it is doubtless objectionable.
    —British Board Of Film Censors. Quoted in Halliwell’s Filmgoer’s Companion (1984)
