24 WORDS PER FILM: an introduction in media res

Shoot the Projectionist is about critical analysis of (and often personal obsession with) film. I've never been interested in writing what you'd call "reviews."

However, I see many more movies than I feel compelled to write about analytically, and I've always wanted some way to document those experiences as well. So, in order to engage and interest myself in the review form, I came up with a gimmick.

In an all too oft-quoted line, Godard said that cinema is truth 24 frames per second. This project is my attempt to distill all of my thoughts and descriptions into exactly 24 words per film.

24 Words Per Film: #1, #2, #3, #4, #5.
