Contemplative Cinema is a Cause to Celebrate Consciousness, Cuz by House 0f Leaves

“Contemplation doesn’t have to mean anything, doesn’t have to give sense to a plot, doesn’t have to drive the story, doesn’t have to give personality to characters… It is an extraordinary moment devoid of intellectualized discourse, psychological manipulation or personal messages. We have to learn to see beauty in emptiness, in dead times, in impersonal sounds… and in silence.”
—Harry Tuttle
