Famous quotes containing the words camera, wizard, swift and/or tom:

    The camera introduces us to unconscious optics as does psychoanalysis to unconscious impulses.
    Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)

    The obvious parallels between Star Wars and The Wizard of Oz have frequently been noted: in both there is the orphan hero who is raised on a farm by an aunt and uncle and yearns to escape to adventure. Obi-wan Kenobi resembles the Wizard; the loyal, plucky little robot R2D2 is Toto; C3PO is the Tin Man; and Chewbacca is the Cowardly Lion. Darth Vader replaces the Wicked Witch: this is a patriarchy rather than a matriarchy.
    Andrew Gordon, U.S. educator, critic. “The Inescapable Family in American Science Fiction and Fantasy Films,” Journal of Popular Film and Television (Summer 1992)

    Jove, nodding, shook the Heavens, and said,
    ‘Offending race of human kind,
    By nature, reason, learning, blind;
    You who through frailty stepped aside,
    And you who never fell—through pride;
    —Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    New York state sentence for a Peeping Tom is six months in the workhouse. And they got no windows in the workhouse. You know, in the old days they used to put your eyes out with a red-hot poker.
    John Michael Hayes (b. 1919)
