Searching for a little something on the pleasure of religion in film. About why Jesus died on the same day as cinema. And how we went there with presents to honor his death. Just because death sells. In cinema as well as in life. But it is only in cinema that death happens to be born within our gaze.

“The ejaculatory force of the eye.”
“Retouching the real with the real.”
