L'arrivée d'un train à La Ciotat

Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat

Hypnosis. Pre-narrative, pre-subjectivity, pre-art, pre-medium, as the camera is merely an invention "without a future". Like a cave painting. The frame skips and the people staring. This too, is but a train of shadows.
