    Another fine collection of essays in Conard s series om film and philosophy Although some essays really boil down to, and this rather reminds us of what good old Plato said of , other aresynergetical with the discussed film and really helped me appreciate itThis goes especially for the ones dealing with Scorsese s older works, presumably because they are further removed fromcontemporary minds like mine.
