This is a message to all soyboy artfaggots. Give me a reason why this being didn't shatter all notions of art. Give a me a reason why he didn't end cinema. Give me a reason why Costa, Ruiz, Beavers, Bresson, Tarkovsky, Jarman, Parajanov, Snow, Benning, Brakhage should be given any credence near let alone over this being

visual literacy
Why Man With a Movie Camera was criticized by Eisenstein

Running around like a buffoon swinging your camera and masking it with cuts, exposures, and superimpositions doesn't replace visual literacy

Que Viva Mexico was shot on the fly. He had no excuse. He was a born failure.

THIS IS A FAR MORE COMPLEX IMAGE THAN ANYTHING FROM A DREYER OR GANCE WORK

Zachary Stewart

what's so complex about it

Jason Smith
Jason Smith

Near synergistic movement, but contrapuntal expression. Poe's work is artistic creation while his sickly partner is neglected slow death. Where is Poe getting his creative spirit, is he creating to suffice his partner and put food on the table or for his own satisfaction. Is he using his partner for his own artistic benefits. The crow at the top and tarnished backdrp represent the naturalistic mise-en-scene. The type that is not compressed like a Bergman in pic-related or the expression of psyche in Caligari. It is the adornments of natural abodes like everyone else's that signify status. The crow watches over as dominance, but the tarnished backdrop shows collapse. They stand not impeding upon one another but either could fall at any second while the crow shows no sign of wear. The crow merely stands there mocking in its ignorance.

closeup means can only see expression
color already signifies expression

Redundancy, one wavelength. This is what precision and compressed reality gets you. Dumbing down.

We want IMPRECISION. SPONTANEOUS CONTROL THAT DOES NOT IMPEDE AND LEAD TO EXPANSION

Zachary Rodriguez

CONTROL THAT LEADS TO EXPANSION
oh you mean like Dreyer? Obviousness. Feeling director more than performance. Contrived sense of "transcendentalism", mismatched eyelines that imply hysteria, set design that mimicks perspective, and abuse of closeups to hit further the point of "God (the audience) listening". You mean dumbing everything down for every single last audience member to understand this entertainment masquerading as high art? You mean Joan of Arc? You mean Ordet?

If the camera expresses the individual's thoughts and actions you are not visually communicating. You are connecting dots.

"What's missing from cinema is the wind in the trees."

Truer words have never been spoken. Griffith's medium is separate from cinema. It is everything and nothing all at the same time. You're nothing but a puppet. You have no free will. If you choose to listen, you were genetically inclined. If you choose to ignore, you're still being mocked regardless.

Impressing is antithetical. It invests and distracts from assessment. You must cloud and confound without the opposition's notice..

Christopher Taylor

You can't merely make a picture centered around abstract metaphors. You have expanded and lost your thesis because the reality you created is compressed to the point of only fitting that message (what you are specifically saying and addressing). Metaphors only work with Eisenstein and Griffith. Universal, interactive, and polysemitic (think: Unchanging Sea (sea is both integral as sea but sea is also metaphysical network of memory), October (sacrifices made at bridge)). The idea becomes the metaphor, reality is the metaphor, not inseparable.

Self-expression and regression into selfhood has put you in the place where you're at.
Costa, Ruiz, Beavers, Bresson, Tarkovsky, Jarman, Parajanov, Snow, Benning, Brakhage
Name one thing any of these no-name fuitloops did that changed things on a mass scale. Griffith shattered all notions of art. Art is bullshit. Cinema is bullshit. Griffith created a medium where he could speak to the world globally, to influence, to change, to inspire to think. Griffith is neither art nor cinema. He is neither artist nor showman. Fuck introspection, fuck self-expression. Griffith attacked all of you lying sacks of shit. That is why he is denigrated. Reviled. There is nothing people hate more than the truth.
