Errol Morris on editing and pets

Reading a collection of interviews with documentary filmmaker Errol Morris, and as you might expect it’s riddled with great quotes. My favorites:

“A director who doesn’t edit what he shoots isn’t really a director.”

and

“It’s said that people have pets because they can’t have effective relationships with other people. I believe it’s the other way around: people have relationships with other people because they can’t have effective relationships with their pets.”
