On Video Interview: Vincent Laforet news story (52 comments in total)

What about "Last Year at Marienbad"? "L'Ange"? "Cremaster 3"? "Rosas Dans Rosas"? All powerfully involving features with no story. Probably not in Mr Laforet's opinion. What about the long history of experimental film in general? I love story films -- story is important for a lot of movies. But not all. I thought DSLRs were going to make cinema more artful by eliminating the conservative barriers to entry, allowing time-based media artists of all kinds a chance to make things worthy of our attention? I think the interviewer's questions are good. Laforet has made some strong work, but I don't think his views here respect or even consider cinema as an artistic medium. These are the views of someone who seems to think no deeper about cinema than what the bonus materials on a DVD tell him to think.
