For The Love Of Cinema
Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated

Cinephilia is the name of the very specific kind of love that cinema inspired. Each art breeds its fanatics. The love that cinema inspired, however, was special. It was born of the conviction that cinema was an art unlike any other; quintessentially modern; distinctively accessible; poetic and mysterious and erotic and moral - all at the same time.
~ Susan Sontag, "A Century Of Cinema"
