Of shoes -- and ships -- and sealing wax --
Of cabbages -- and kings --
And why the sea is boiling hot --
And whether pigs have wings.
No scary predictions, please.
yeah, I second Ojas on this. Besides, what's that film which begins with Godard in the hospital? JLG/JLG? Or Prenom Carmen?
Someone please chart the life expectancy of commercial directors versus arthouse directors. I bet there's a correlation.
ojas: My apologies. My plan is to jinx bad things from happening by predicting them. space bar: I think it was Prenom Carmen. km: correlation? with what?
poetry on Antonioni, please. Sparse.All I can muster is rip Rilke (and I don't even know if that is apt, but it feels so, so anyways...):And at last, you saw yourself as a fruit, you stepped / out of your clothes and brought your naked body / before the mirror, you let yourself inside / down to your gaze; which stayed in front, immense, / and didn't say: I am that; no: this is. / So free of curiosity your gaze / had become, so unpossessive, of such true / poverty, it had no desire even / for you yourself; it wanted nothing: holy.
Death playing rapid chess?He seems to have taken against "arthouse" this week, so Jean-Luc and Resnais better watch out.
