An aside, or: a note on cinephilia #2


We must believe in the body, but as in the germ of life, the seed which splits open the paving-stones, which has been preserved and lives on in the holy shroud or the mummy's bandages, and which bears witness to life, in the world as it is. We need an ethic or faith, which makes fools laugh: it is not a need to believe in something else, but a need to believe in this world, of which fools are a part.

--Gilles Deleuze, Cinema 2: The Time-Image (Continuum, 2005), p.167.
