Unfortunate metonymic cliches in film writing -
- Gorki on the "kingdom of shadows" (quoted in 97.6% of all pieces on cinema's origins, as well as in 29.0% of all books of film theory).
- Brakhage on the child who sees grass but does not know "green" (mentioned in 94.2% of texts that ever mention Brakhage).
Other suggestions welcomed ...
(NB: All calculations strictly tentative and provisional, to say nothing of impressionistic and highly questionable.)
