L'arrivée d'un train à La Ciotat

MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat

Not sure what to make of this mess. One thing is certain: this so-called "cinema" is going nowhere. It's a mere gimmick. Like the panorama or the kinetoscope. Think photography, with clumsy animation. Listen up, folks, cinema is just a fad. Let's focus on "real" art: theatre, literature, you know. In five years nobody will remember this stuff.
