Film Modernism

Sam Rohdie

Manchester University Press

If nothing is fixed, nothing made permanent, nothing irretrievably connected, joined, made to function and signify, then any number of new relations become possible and the film and the lives within its fiction are opened up and liberated. The price of that liberation for the characters is the dissolution of relations, the realisation of separateness, seeing the gap, perceiving the banalities and emptiness; the price of that liberation for the film is the breaking of representational and narrative ties whose yield is the possibility for images to freely relate

Keywords:   representation, liberation, dissolution
