“Why make a movie if you don’t have something to say? What are you doing it for? Are you doing it because you want to make a lot of money?” — Jake Gyllenhaal

Short Link to this Quote:
Jake Gyllenhaal is questioning the motivations for making films. He implies that if a filmmaker doesn’t have a meaningful message or perspective they want to express through their movie, their primary goal may simply be to earn money. Gyllenhaal suggests this is not a very compelling or artistically fulfilling reason on its own to undertake a film project.
His point seems to be that the most interesting and worthwhile movies are usually driven first by a director or writer having an original story or viewpoint they feel is important to share, rather than just a desire to profit financially from the end product.
