Inspired to write

I happened to be reading a film reference book, back in ’98, which defined movie terminology, such as “post-modernism”. This particular term, post-modernism, was especially interesting, as it seemed relevant to a few films I had been watching at the time.

The book referred to those films in the reference on post-modernism. The entry in the book opened my mind up–so I used it as the inspiration for a short piece I wrote for my movie column back then.

Looking at the piece now, to me, it sounds strong and thought-provoking, but I also felt uncomfortable with it. Did I say that back then? Was it the right thing to say? Yet, overall, it does make an interesting point, a point which has sort of come together with other ideas and thoughts I’ve had on film, like a cumulative jell. I did write an unpublished booklet back in 1999 of my thoughts about film called “film thought”, that while quite interesting, could have been improved upon.
