Homage, Vittorio de Sica


The power of the tumblr
to concentrate the mind
by spontaneous projection
is an alluring defect, as
well as a reconstitution
of the sovereign weight of
the image. For Laurent the
stamp of de Sica's second
film is almost absolutely
peerless in its orchestra-
tion of coherency from tum-
bling shots of unalleviated
legitimacy, a moral judg-
ment unequivocally earned.

Here, a simple fashion shot
captures the youth's inher-
itance of the fedora, which
is all we want, to identify
that film without purloining
images meant for the screen.

Inheritance, again. When will
you ever learn, Laurent?
