Transcendental Style in Film by Paul Schrader
"Impressive work of criticism for someone just out of college who would later have a career making films rather than writing about them. It's a fairly deep reading of these three directors and almost instantly oriented how I see them. I'm reminded..." Read more of this review »

Leo Tolstoy
“In the entr’acte Levin and Pestsov fell into an argument upon the merits and defects of music of the Wagner school. Levin maintained that the mistake of Wagner and all his followers lay in their trying to take music into the sphere of another art, just as poetry goes wrong when it tries to paint a face as the art of painting ought to do, and as an instance of this mistake he cited the sculptor who carved in marble certain poetic phantasms flitting round the figure of the poet on the pedestal. "These phantoms were so far from being phantoms that they were positively clinging on the ladder," said Levin. [...] Pestsov maintained that art is one, and that it can attain its highest manifestations only by conjunction with all kinds of art.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Herman Melville
“A soul's a sort of a fifth wheel to a wagon.”
Herman Melville, Moby-Dick, or, the Whale

Nikolai Gogol
“This police commissary was a great patron of all the arts and industries; but what he liked above everything else was a cheque. “That’s the thing,” he used to say, “to which it is not easy to find an equivalent; it requires no food, it does not take up much room, it stays in one's pocket, and if it falls, it is not broken.”
Nikolai Gogol, The Nose

“ATHENA: You wish to be called righteous rather than act right.”
Aeschylus, Eumenides

Miroslav Krleža

A koga vraga cmizdriš,
zamusana mužača,
kaj su ti sinu dali tatski ogerlič?
Na galge dojde samo fini fičfirič,
naj sliniti, smardljiva bedača.

Još su ga mogli nabiti na ketača,
z goročim kleštram popokati mu nokte.
Od sega tega občuval je dragi nam Bog te
i rešil te za navek tega čarvendača!

Od lucke je volje volja božja jača,
od Boga pak je jači, bomeš, gospon Komeš.
Dobiš po gubcu, baba, če ne čkomeš.

Ni fajde nam od plača. V birtije pijača,
karmine tvojem sinu napijaju pajdaši!
Dojdi z nama, mama!
Kesno je popoldan iti k maši!”
Miroslav Krleža, Les Ballades de Petrica Kerempuh
