  • Mihai Cristea's rating of the film The Italian

    "I’m no storyteller, I basically loathe stories. I am a story-destroyer, I am the epitome of a story-destroyer.In my work, whenever any sort of portent of a story appears,or I see any sort of suspicion of a story surfacing from behind a massif of prose,I shoot it down.It’s the same way with sentences,I practically revel in nipping in the bud sentences that even possibly might come to term. On the other hand.." (T.B.)
