On Studying Film

 

 In what ways do photographs and films call us to a qualitative self-examination?  How and why do they spark ontological questions by raising for us conundrums of being, of our placement with respect to ourselves and the world?  In this manner, revisiting classical film theory today is also a way of revivifying a kind of questioning that explores our sensuous contact with images and recharacterizes their (visible and outward) perceptual density in a way that also leads us inward—a self-examination of our relation to time, memory, and history. (D.N. Rodowick, The Virtual Life of Film, 75)
