Great post here; http://fengsunchen.wordpress.com/2010/12/14/sucking/
which leads to another interesting article here; http://www.montevidayo.com/?p=632
One of the great modern masterpieces of cinema used to a more productive art form
utilising a subdued palette to represent 'that suspension in time' and disconnection from
a moving frame. Suspended as Eli is in her own entropic frozen layered 12yr cycle.
I enjoy both the reference in the above articles to Eli as a direct opposite to the
'reproductive futurism' and also the comparison made to
'the healing of St. Thomas' (Anish Kapoor) both in the metaphoric & aesthetic sense.
