True Art – like Love, like Life – is beyond all concepts and intellectualization

I don’t believe that rational understanding is an essential element in the reception of any work of art. Either a film has something to say to you or it hasn’t. If you are moved by it, you don’t need it explained to you. If not, no explanation can make you moved by it.
– Federico Fellini

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    I understand what he’s saying, I really do, but, at least at times for me, the nuances and subtleties the director is aiming for (and in his mind achieving) leaves me scratching my head, so yes, there are times when a film needs to be explained, in order for me to comprehend the scope of its direction. Life and love on the other hand is never to be understood and perhaps that’s a good thing. Otherwise people would (and yes some already do) spend their ‘meaningless’ lives seeking “truth” and to what end?

      Explanations kill the poetry of anything…

      That´s good therefore to scratch one´s head in wonder…- as the best messages are paradoxical – they are never to be addressed with the mind…unless we want to belittle them…;)

      So let´s stop seeking 🙂

      Let´s simply expose ourselves for THE SUPREME RIDDLE…..
