"In the new century, it is psychoanalysis that is in full retreat, a mere ghost haunting the hermeneutic mills of the humanities. And yet, Nosferatu is still with us: the excess energy of the undead is now readable as belonging to the cinema and its eccentric patterns of propagation and proliferation across the culture at large. Not only in the way films have deposited their coffins in galleries, museums, schools and libraries, but also thanks to the Renfields – cinephiles turned necrophiles – at home in archives, lovingly restoring perished prints and reviving the ‘originals’ at Sunday matinees or special retrospectives. Less fancifully perhaps, remakes of the cinema’s own classics and restorations of the cinematic patrimony are also efforts to banish and ‘contain’ the mysterious forces or life-forms that the sound-image media have brought into (human) existence."

"A specter is haunting the cinema: the specter of narrative. If that apparition is an Angel, we must embrace it; and if it is a Devil, then we must cast it out. But we cannot know what it is until we have met it face to face."

Hollis Frampton, A Pentagram for Conjuring the Narrative

"I went to wash my hair… and then the woman hairdresser approached and she told me: “Why don’t I give you a massage with some oil?” I enjoyed it, but I felt so obscene, as if I’d payed for masturbation."
— Slavoj Zizek, from the documentary Zizek!
