What is Hollywood, you ask, dear children? A quorum of whores babbling endlessly on about fucking while the bordello is razed for a penny arcade -- Paul Bern

One of the first functions
of realism in the cinema
is how the
money spent in the being there
(but never wasted)
upon conversion into image,
is refracted and reverberates
out unto real objects
manifesting or lacking a consequent allure.

This reciprocal charging of the non-space between image and real
benefits both in their natural (essential) poverty.
This is the obscure mysticism of money...
Bresson: Getting close to things may be the way to perceive supernatural things. The supernatural is always in reality, it is something real to which we approach as much as possible.
