    A visit to Père Lachaise in Paris adds a year to one's life. - J.G. Ballard

  2. José Neves's rating of the film Every Revolution Is a Throw of the Dice

    "Huillet et Straub ont simplement placé le poème dans un contexte cinématographique: un paysage, lourd d’un passé à peine passé d’être sous cette terre, trop proche; des êtres doués de parole; de la lumière jouant partout et une machine.

  8. gongoina's rating of the film Every Revolution Is a Throw of the Dice
