What are your thoughts on Straub/Huillet? From The Clouds is a real masterpiece, they are masters of language pushing through there normal diction in Clouds by reaching subconsciousness association as I remember them. Eugene Green had this great quote from an interview I cant seem to separate from the work, "I think, historically, the cinema was born in the late 19th century in an attempt to recover the old value of speech—that is to say, the ability to designate elements of the material world (le mot) like this so that the signs that identify them have their own identity and at the same time the unspeakable mystery of the thing designated, including its spiritual dimension... For this reason, I would define cinema as "the word made image," I'm not to sure but I believe this is somewhat clarifying for Sraub/Huilllet in how we take on there images and discourse they are hard to clarify I'd be really interested in your thoughts on the film?
I did receive it, Thanks!
