The Death of Cinema


RIP Věra Chytilová.

From a documentary about her film school, The Kids from FAMU — “Everyone told me not to make DAISIES, they said ‘Don’t do it, you’ll break your neck!’ I said, ‘But I WANT to break my neck!'”

You go girl.

Pretty depressing, the way the last of the sixties arthouse gods and goddesses are vanishing from this earth. I’m not keen on death. I think I might be against it.
