Harold Lloyd’s modernity

Harold Lloyd never wanted his films to be aired on television to prevent publicity from breaking them up. Only at the end of the 70s did they reach the small screen before the amazement of an audience that rediscovered a genius of the silent cinema that the kids of today contemplate fascinated. And is that […]

Richard Mervyn Hare, ethics at heart

Said law or guillotine de Hume does not cut heads: only undue conclusions or inferences. Those who move from “what is” to “what must be”, from what describes a fact (Paul is a doctor) in what is an imperative or a prescription (Anna must close the window). This “cut” is not so simple. May Paul […]

The art of dialogue at full speed and without hindrance

Cellulite, the Frustrated, Agrippina: the characters pass, the Bretécher […]

The cicada having worked all year …

Turn the pages of this album like you read a poem and delve into the naked and abrupt truth of the business. A cold and calm truth. The language chosen is that of the typed administrative report. “Tik, Tik, Tik.” It only takes a few words to say the main thing, the power of the […]

The end of progress | Opinion

Progress is a relatively recent concept and reality, closely linked to the Enlightenment, and especially to industrial revolutions. It has come to an end.

The manga legend Yoshiharu Tsuge in Angoulême to receive the Fauve d’honneur

“Are you aware of living a historic moment?” We hardly. On the other hand, for the few world comic stars gathered this morning in the rain in front of the Museum of Fine Arts while the festival-goers were still sleeping, the moment was ecstatic of Sainte-Thérèse. The American Charles Burns or the Japanese Inio Asano […]
