Salon interview with Peter Greenaway

"In a sense Godard destroyed everything -- a great, great director, but in a sense he rang the death knell, because he broke cinema all apart, fragmented it, made it very, very self-conscious...For me, the three big guys of the history of cinema would be Eisenstein, who virtually made the language, Orson Welles, who consolidated it, and then Godard, who threw it all away". Peter Greenaway in an interview with Christopher Hawthorne at Salon.

Since Greenaway's perspective is that of a visual/conceptual artist turned filmmaker, I find his point of view distressing, although it's easy to understand.

There is, on the one hand, a certain amount of credibility to his comments regarding Eisenstein, Welles and Godard, but on the other hand, it represents the egocentric artist in him lashing out at commercialism and in so doing, he has put himself on the spot.
