“Comedians are often our best historians of the present because they are at once intensely invested in and poorly adapted to their moment, at one and yet out of sync with their surroundings and situation.

The very act of writing about cinema fosters the act of talking about cinema, as a way to relate to cinema, to share cinema, and thus to see cinema. We take in more from things when we feel capable of putting them into words, or when we suddenly feel ourselves able to recall them in our memory.

Écrire sur le cinéma permet d’en parler aussi, c’est-à-dire de se positionner par rapport au cinéma, de partager le cinéma, et donc de regarder le cinéma : nous voyons de façon plus juste les choses, quand nous sommes capables de les dire, en pouvant se les rappeler tout d’un coup.
