Nobody said the work we're discussing is or isn't any

Not me. Agreeing on what makes something "good" is a
lost cause. Agreeing on dictionary definitions of
tangible objects like film and video is a more
realistic goal. And it would serve ANY of our
discussions to know what we mean by the word "film",
and what word we use to refer exclusively to that
medium which is always viewed by passing light through
a strip of clear acetate.
