NOSEX

"both high and low culture have produced masterpieces and works of mediocrity. it is our task to find beauty in unexpected places." — jahsonic (june, 2006), art & popular culture wiki

"i urge you: learn to look at ‘bad’ films, they are so often sublime." — adonis kyrou,
le surréalisme au cinéma (1953)


"a still is not a film. it lacks the dimensions of time and movement — indispensable components of film art — and represents only a small fraction of a single second of a given motion picture." — amos vogel, film as a subversive art (1974)

639 notes "Are our ways of teaching students to ask some questions always correlative with our ways of teaching them not to ask - indeed, to be unconscious of - others? Does the educational system exist in order to promulgate knowledge, or is its main function rather to universalize a society’s tacit agreement about what it has decided it does not and cannot know?"
Barbara Johnson, “Teaching Ignorance: L’Ecole des femmes,” Yale French Studies 63 (1982), p. 173
