Letrrist Cinema

“The history of Cinema is full of corpses with a high market value. While crowds and the intelligentsia are yet again discovering old man Chaplin or salivating with admiration for the latest of Luis Bunuel’s Surrealist remakes, the ravages of the Lettrists, who are young and good-looking proceed apace. Screens are mirrors that petrify the adventurous by returning their own images to them and halting them in their tracks. If one cannot pass through the screen of photography to something deeper, then the cinema holds no interest for me.” – Jean-Isidore Isou, April 1951 [source]
