NO CONDITION IS HALLOWEEN [Episode #44 ~ 10-25-14]

NCIP Halloween 2014

Corniness is the other side of marvelousness. What person believing in a fantasy can bear to have its other side discovered. Thru accidents,rudenesses, scandals, human weaknesses have cut short those who made movie worlds (movies as place) that were too full to have room for anything but coincidences, politenesses & benightings. But denial is short lived. So will our denial of our personal films. Someday we will value these personal masterpieces. We don’t have to do injustice to the film of cutting, camera movement, rhythm, classical feeling, structured, thought loaded (for there’s the moldiness of the foreign darling, that it disobeys its own most central rule that technique by itself can evoke as does poetry). Yet plots that demand serious definite attention spell out the evocation for the images.

These were light films if we really believed that films are visual it would be possible to believe these rather pure cinema – weak technique, true, but rich imagery. They had a stilted, phony imagery that we choose to object to, but why react against that phoniness. That phoniness could be valued as rich in interest & revealing. Why do we object to not being convinced – why can’t we enjoy phoniness? Why resent the patent “phoniness’, of these films – because it holds a mirror to our own, possibly.

– Jack Smith, “The Perfect Filmic Appositeness Of Maria Montez,” Historical Treasures
