145 notes "cinema is a living cemetery. featured movies of the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s continue to haunt us from the bottom of the grave. there are people who will see now a film by fritz lang for the first time [in] their lives. rooms of the latin quarter, with their revival, are populated by ghosts… i feel death in any movie scene."
