A film which merely aims to make a profit by showing off the stars’ faces cannot be real art. The capitalist cinema, which promotes a few ”popular stars“ to curry favor with the audience, is in essence a reactionary art form which reduces the stars to puppets and the film to a commodity. There cannot be a genuine creative spirit, and the beautiful flower of art cannot bloom where actors sell their faces and even their souls. — Kim Jong-il On The Art of Cinema (1973)
