SummaryDebord: 204. Critical theory must be communicated in its own language. It is the language of contradiction, which must be dialectical in form as it is in content. It is critique of the totality and historical critique. It is not "the nadir of writing" but its inversion. It is not a negation of style, but the style of negation. [ from Perform in POV ]
QuestionsFilm Function (424): the issue is not how we use films, but how film is uses us!
Structuralism: the study of culture as language (extension of semiotics), in class -- Formalism and Constructivism (1920s): "the project of picturing the world not in language but as language."
NotesI feel that only I know I can get to the showcases (Kurosawa, Bergman and so on), which were the subject of the whole semester before!

"What Is to be Done?"
"Cinema is not to be confused with the other arts, which aim rather at an unreality through the world; cinema transforms the world itself into unreality or story: with cinema, the world becomes its own image, and not an image which becomes world." Gilles Deleuze, Cinema 1: L'lmage-Mouvement, Chapter 4[ more quotes from POV ]
The fact that film was totally intergrated into new medium (or multi-media) is the indication what we are in the Postmodern Age of Cinema!
Debord: "The spectacle does not realize philosophy, it philosophizes reality." (#19) [ from Perform in POV ] The 4th stage of development of semiotics (since 1975): shifting attention from production to consumption (Lacan). Not only how films speak, but most important how do the act!
The social use of film (behavior modification): we are formated by the movies (new softwear of the postmodern culture).
