The dull bits cut out.

“I don’t want to film a “slice of life” because people can get that at home. They don’t have to pay money to see a slice of life. And I avoid out-and-out fantasy because people should be able to identify with the characters.

Making a film means to tell a story. It must be dramatic and human. Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.”

— Alfred Hitchcock
