Quote from: GhostboyYeah, me too. Sometimes I'll watch a movie for the specific purpose of examining its technique...and then suddenly it'll be over and I haven't examined a single thing. But if it's a good movie, it's edifying on a subconscious level, too.
Quote from: wantautopia?I like how if I'm trying to watch a movie for a while, looking at just the edits (and maybe some of the sound), if it's a well-made movie, I can't really do it for long because I'll get sucked back in.

Thanks, Mr. Kotteeeeeeh.So what do you think about it?Excellent so far. I love how fast a read it is. And you know that feeling when you've learned something and you know it's right and you feel your brain forming a new wrinkle because it's just so perfect and you can't believe you didn't see it before? That's the feeling I got when I read the little ditty called "Don't Worry, It's Only A Movie." The theories about blinking you thought were awesome were the exact same thing I loved. One of the best insights I've ever seen about editing, and it's so obvious, so simple. The next chapter's follow-up is great about elaborating and expanding on it. Here's hoping it gets better.
