Film: Peter Bogdanovich


The fascinating thing about film is that it’s an illusion. You see people pointing at the screen and saying ‘That movie…’

But that’s not where the movie is, it’s up in the projection booth, in the can. What they’re pointing at is just shadows on the wall and projections of their own emotions.

This is a – presumably conscious – reference to Plato’s Cave.
