Anyone for Nichols or Rodowick?
Interesting exchange on good ol’ Levinson there, but not anyone for Nichols or Rodowick?
How about Nichols getting Benjamin and Baudrillard together? Not that obvious, I’d say. So here is some material for debate, I should think.
And Rodowick. I’ll admit that it’s no easy read, but you’re big girls now (en Klaas is a big boy). So here’s a hint: Think of the Babette Mangolte quote: “Why is it difficult for the digital image to communicate duration?” In the next part of the book Rodowick in a way confronts the Jean Eustache example with Aleksandr Sokurov’s Russian Ark, stating that there is a fundamental difference between both, in spite of the apparent similarity of the long take approach. For him, Russian Ark is fundamentally different.
Have a look at Mangolte’s work here.
