Deleuze has multiple works on the subject
Looking for literature regarding film making, and analysis. Something that focuses more on the art of film, and cinematography. I've grown a lot of interest in film and would like something that can give me a bit of theoretical knowledge on the subject.
At this precise moment there are passionate young men sacrificing a life of ease, social conquest and material comfort for the sake of producing great art. How can post-college /lit/ users justify their slow drift towards regret and mediocrity?
As a NEET, I can't imagine the sort of self-hating and masochistic personality that allows a person to submit their will to the demands of other people. To waste their life and any potential they have performing some tedious daily routine for the purpose of making a lot of money for other people.
>As a NEET, I can't imagine
NEETs are usually incapable of understanding the motivations and aspirations of others not exactly like themselves.
There's probably a link between being NEET and being autistic.

Surprised how mystical sounding he can be for an existentialist
Kohler is visiting his parents with his wife and kids.
"Consciousness, I say, consciousness is what counts. Like the butterfly in the killing jar, he says, consciousness is soon stilled."
"Men are full moons--always--regardless of the phase they're in."
"My mother put her hand on my head/neck/back--tip, tip, tap--lightly like benediction, sanding my skin with glass."
As a novice to the hobby, who until recently read not much more than fantasy and history non-fiction. I've become interested in gravity's rainbow purely from the synopsis and it being talked about all the time.
I only started reading some of the more classic literature in the past year, so is there anything I should know/read before diving in to it?
/lit/, what book should I read if I am seeking to find redemptive value in evil? To explain more, I am expecting to experience political oppression, and potential systematic extermination in a concentration camp, within a year or so. I say this because my studies of environmental science, have informed me that Earth is actually undergoing the 6th mass extinction, and it is undergoing abrupt climate change.

Has ANYBODY put forward any form of literature worth reading that argues in favor of objective morality in a godless society, that is worth reading?
Why did Tristan und Isolde have greater literary merit than it's peers? Why did Romanticism have to be such unsubtle, trite garbage in comparison?
Has there been any literature or music that has better touched the theme of longing better than Tristan und Isolde?
I am >> I'm
