Film Title Poem

Film Title Poem ★★★★½

I was watching it wrong before. My perspective was that of a classifier and list maker when this is art.

I kept asking "Why these films? Why this order?" but those questions matter only in the production of the piece, not so much in reception.

I was annoyed because a month ago I made a list of film memories and never published it because I couldn't decide what order the films should go in. And here's someone else who presents her list so beautifully and doesn't need to communicate the particulars to us. I was jealous because here on screen was something that reflected what's in my mind but that I don't have the means to express.

I've watched this a few times since the first but I'm not going to log them all. I'm now obsessed and need to process this film as lists. Many lists.
