Patrick Marber QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A couple of flop plays, a death in the family, and it could all collapse.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
Always when I directed the play, I was always trying to cast people not who were necessarily like the characters, but people who I felt had the essential component that the character had, some kind of soul for it.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
But I think the thing I'm proud of about the film is that there aren't many films - either independent films or mainstream Hollywood films - that are like this; it's of its own times, and it's the film Mike Nichols wanted to make.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
But I'm the sort of person who, if certain structures topple, it could all go horribly wrong.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
I hoped the dramatic power of the play would rest on that tension between elegant structure - the underlying plan is that you see the first and last meeting of every couple in the play - and inelegant emotion.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
I know it's a film and all of that, and it's a Hollywood film, but it kind of feels like this sometimes, when you're in pain and it hurts, and you're desperate. Or you are about to cross some moral line and it's so seductive and you just do... and all that.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
I like them all - I don't always approve. I see myself as a sort of benevolent uncle to these characters, and I can see why they do what they do; sometimes they make some mistakes, but at heart I think they're decent.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
I mean when the play was on in New York I was starting to get film offers coming through, and since the film's come out I get offered more than I used to, but it happens incrementally.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
I used to go with my parents and loved it, I was in school plays, and I started reading plays before I started reading novels. I'll defend it to the hilt. When theatre is good it is fabulous.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
I was like that with gambling and I'd be like that with drinking if the lunchtime drink became a bottle rather than a glass.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
I'd really like to write a play. I miss the theatre and I've got to get off my arse and write a play; that's really what I've got to do.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
I'm a Golden Globe nominee, yes. It's very nice. It's a very nice thing, but I kind of think of all the awards I wasn't ever nominated for, for years and things.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
I'm a happily married man and I think to get married you have to be optimistic.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
I'm constantly having to be vigilant with a depressive tendency, an addictive tendency.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
It doesn't really feel like it's got anything to do with me. I mean, I know I wrote it, and all that and invented the characters and made it up, but it's Mike's film, so doing the press and stuff, it feels a little bit inauthentic. I was just one component of it.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
It just sort of slowly... you notice more people are calling but it doesn't feel like a big shock. It's very nice but it's not shocking.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
It's one of the reasons I don't do drugs. One sniff and I'd go all the way.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
So at last I've got some writing time. And I've really been missing my typewriter.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
So yeah I'm completely optimistic. You have to be, because when you've given up on love, you've given up on life.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
The idea was always to create something that has a formal beauty into which you could shove all this anger and fury.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
The trite answer is that everything is true but none of it happened. It is emotionally true, but the events, the plotting, the narrative, isn't true of my life, though I've experienced most of the emotions experienced by the characters in the play.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
Theatre is how I first encountered art on any level.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
Well, I never know how much an actor puts of themselves in, and how much they're drawing on personal experience, and I wouldn't like to pry.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
Well, you just know, as a writer, I didn't really write one of the five best screenplays of the year. There were lots of brilliant screenplays; I was just one of the lucky ones who got nominated.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
When I look back I can't believe I was so stupid as to direct Dealer's Choice.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
When it was a play, I'm the teller of the story, but the director of the film is really the teller of the story.
Quotation of Patrick Marber
When you're in your early 20s your love life seems to explode every 20 minutes or so. By the time you've reached your thirties, it is every five or ten years.
