No dull bits, because we live for drama!
In 1956, after a preview screening of his latest film — The Man Who Knew Too Much — legendary director Alfred Hitchcock was reported to have said: “Movies have lost a lot by this new trend towards documentary realism at the sacrifice of fantasy. After all, drama is life with the dull bits cut out.”
