    1. Raul Ruiz filmmaker, theorist, philosopher, seer This is an astounding treatise on film theory, providing a multiplicity of tools, both esoteric and incisive, for dissecting and constructing film Or really any kind of narrative art I d really like to attempt to apply these concepts to comics as well or writing, or, hell, even music.Like Calvino, whose Six Memos this shares some ideas and references with, Ruiz is a storyteller at heart also, Carrington All Stories are true , and for all of his re [...]

    2. Raul Ruiz is one of those people who appear to be, deep in their hearts, total anarchists at war with the constraints of logic and societal expectations of meaning, but who in their expression are enad with elaborate games, mazes and labyrinths, masks within masks within masks, and endless ramifications spun by logic run rampant It s a very interesting combination, and his films are the very stimulating product of this combination.Check out Three Crowns of the Sailor, or Hypothesis of the Stolen [...]

    5. This is not just a vast and expansive theory of cinema but a treatise on the modern world at large for in a lot of ways media has become the focal point of our lives and as it dominates societal discourse you can t just turn around and rund away Ruiz picks apart in audacious manner the dominant dogmas in cinema be it central conflict theory or conventional schools of cutting and contrasts them with his own theories.In the same sense this is a history book The history of 20th century cinema told [...]

    6. In spite of the title, I read this in English translation after being told that Ruiz was often identified with the baroque An interesting read, and much easier to get through than most film theory That being said, you have to be careful to not simply breeze through the anecdotes and vignettes that compose the majority of this text Reading Ruiz reminded me of Borges, Sarduy but with fewer transvestites , or a post structuralist theorist he focuses on the peripheral and unseen underlying elements [...]
