Compendium of thoughts and reflections about the movies and their impact on our culture, our way to see and perceive the world. Not a history or essay, but a succession of fragments and aphorisms that reveal certain paradigm images, certain predominant speeches, of what movies had been and represent as a reservoir of ideas and sensations, of visions and textures that respond to historic circumstances from the 20th century, as well as changing in taste, regarding to ethics and aesthetics that have signed our age.
