Hey, So I Remembered I Said I Was Going To Do This!

"A hundred clichés move us. For we sense dimly that the clichés are talking among themselves, and celebrating a reunion.Just as the height of pain may encounter sensual pleasure, and the height of perversion border on mystic energy, so too the height of banality allows us to catch a glimpse of the sublime.”
---Umberto Eco, delivering his private theory on why Casablanca is so popular: not because it's in any way good, but because it delivers every cliche imaginable. I personally have no opinion on the subject; I just want to see what he thinks of Titanic.

Later Days.
