Chantal Akerman on time

“You know, when most people go to the movies, the ultimate compliment—for them—is to say, ‘We didn’t notice the time pass!’ With me, you see the time pass. And feel it pass. You also sense that this is the time that leads toward death. There’s some of that, I think. And that’s why there’s so much resistance. I took two hours of someone’s life.”
