To Fond Memories Of The Cinematheque (first letter)

Movies coalesce in our unsettled minds.

Knowingly or not, most of us star in movies that no one cares about, unless, or until, other people do.

Movies ritualize being alone together and being together while alone.

Anyone claiming to have objective criteria for assessing the conceptual rigour of movies is lying.

The use of movies in mediating how we relate to one another is killing me.

Movies seduce us by conflating the finite and eternal.

Our expectations for the form and content of movies reflect social conditions under capital, not the inherent limitations or requirements of movies themselves.

Movies are both representations displacing experience and experiences displacing representation.

Movies become something else when we know who we are.
