i.e.spatially (in a deep sense of the word) incoherent.

I DON'T think the (so-called circa 2011) Avant-garde would want to
identify so strongly with incoherence for its' seeming own but I could
be wrong.

For that matter, someone tell me the difference between false realism
- and what, true realism ;-) ?

Which is John Ford ? Douglas Sirk ? Bunuel ? Pedro Costa ? Bela Tarr ?
Robert Beavers ?
Straub/Huillet ? or... Uh, Eisenstein ? ;-)

Hi Mom, I've broken the illusion of reality inherent in dominant
cinema, now what do I do ?
