Film Art

'The human being is all important in the theatre. The drama on screen can exist without actors. A banging door, a leaf in the wind, waves beating on the shore can heighten the dramatic effect. Some film masterpieces use man only as an accessory, like an extra, or in counterpoint to nature, which is the true leading role'.

D Bordwell. K Thompson - Film Art, p.121
