And the blogoscar goes to...

Why do we go to the movies?

What do people seek when they enter that darkened theatre?



(πάτα play)



















Cinema has the power to expand our emotional bandwith...




...to make us feel sensations that we rarely experience in our normal lives...




...to reconnect with our higher selves...






...to remind us of what humans are capable of, in terms of both good... 






...and evil...





...to be reminded we’re not alone... ~Joseph Campbell





...to give ourselves pleasure...






...the same pleasure we have when we wake up from a nightmare... ~Alfred Hitchcock




...it is a bit like being raped... ~Luis Buñuel




...it's a therapy for our debilitating depression... ~Woody Allen






...no form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does... 








...straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul. ~Ingmar Bergman




There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life. ~Federico Fellini




After all, everything we learned, we learned from the movies. ~Audrey Hepburn
