Book of the Week — Movies as a Form of Reincarnation

“Because you thought I was given the key to that library, becoming in that regard its keeper, I was able to become a triumphant blur, an unmistakeable hum in the night. These are the corridors where I wandered, a shrouded, lightning haunted landscape at the edge of sight, a ruined world, that memory, that deceiver, cannot shake loose.”

— John Yau
