A Shot is a Thought

“These shots didn’t say here’s a woman in a car, which is part of the film’s story.

They said I think this moment is beautiful, this moment is true.

In other words, I think.

A shot is a thought.

A director’s thought.”

Mark Cousins on ” A bout de souffle” from “The Story of Film: An Odyssey”
