Lawrence brought this quote by Algernon Blackwood to my attention the day before the marathon screening of CIRCUS SAVAGE.
"The Screen flashes into light and with the picture consciousness passes across the world. The lie of the stationary photography is corrected, time is denied, partially at least, and space is unable to boast and swagger as it loves to do. The cinema frees and extends the consciousness, restores the past, and sets distance close beneath the eyes. Only the watching self remains, pregnant symbol in the darkness." Algernon Blackwood
