You Think It’s OK For You
I’m lost without a clear linear narrative upset by temporal disjunction and chagrined by jump-cut edits. I have no way of disengaging from this nightmare. I’d just like to fall asleep. I’m certain this is the devil’s work, and the devil doesn’t speak in lap dissolves or imminent fade outs.
What I’m Reading:
“I do not want films to show, as in existing documentary (the only direction film has taken to free itself from photographed drama) but to transform images so that they exist in relation to the film only as they flash onto the screen …exist in their own right, so to speak.”
