Was just looking at the newly launched project of producing film criticism (and film scholarly criticism to boot) by the InTransition / CinemaJournal team — with notably a series on Bergman’s senses (or is it on the glorious, painful frailty of the human condition? Maybe both [at least!] ?) here when it all came back where I had seen my first video essay.
Actually, I don’t remember when, but all French film-lovers will remember this jingle as it played, every sunday evenings, in introduction to films famous or not, Hollywood or not, during the 1980s (still today!). An introduction that has stayed with us all and must be created for fostering the love of cinema [the love of Hollywood**any difference between the two?**], a lovely rendition of the dialogic nature of films, film as regard, film as mode of regard, film as mode in regard, here and there, the lover and the loved, today and yesterday, from this film to the other, film as “oscillation” (Laura Mulvey).
