How best to survive the long cold winter.

Exile, was not her dress - but it wore her well.

I can see every Tarkovsky film in her broken face, every refuge director in her eyes. Exile, was not her dress – but it wore her well.

  1. Perhaps she had the best way of handling disappointment? To let it in, to let it wash over and around her.
    The Exile of War. Many declare war on love everyday, but never know. To actually occupy a space love cannot seem to penetrate, win or be felt … Deleuze’s “Any Place Whatever” …

    Interstitial at best, but we all know Religion around the world describes this place very well as worst very simply – where no love can be felt, penetrate or reach – there is only Hell. On Earth it has a special name, a worse name:
    _______________________
    Gehenna (Greek γέεννα)
    In this the Targums are parallel to the Gospel of Mark addition of “Gehenna” to the quotation of the Isaiah verses describing the corpses :
    “where their worm does not die”

    “…Chris Marker uses airport terminals, public buildings, etc., as a means of undermining certain presuppositions one might have regarding the identity of character, plot, etc. Antonioni’s use of desert landscapes does much the same thing; in short, the ‘any space whatsoever’ functions in much the same manner that the time-image does: it places the identity of character, plot, etc., into crisis.” Jeffery Bell

    “The only condition of fighting for the right to create is faith

    in your own vocation, readiness to serve, and refusal to compromise.

    My purpose is to make films that will help people to live,

    even if they sometimes cause unhappiness.” -AT

    “Instead of attempting to capture these nuances, most unpretentious `true-to-life` films not only ignore them but make a point of using sharp, overstated images which at best can only make the picture seem far-fetched. And I am all for cinema being as close as possible to life – even if on occasion we have failed to see how beautiful life really is.” -AT

    Sorrow is real, but the duration, that is all but too real. Even though between the two it is time that does not exist. It is time who’s hand is shaking holding his bloody razor in the yard – Mirrors cannot help what is not truly real remain any safer than if it were I being shaved by time. -Z
