A conference at the Cinémathèque was billed as « A cinema lesson, » given by the actor/director/counterculture hero Dennis Hopper. It ends up being Hopper just chatting about Hopper and his (famous) buddies. Not much about the art of cinema. A few film clips. He wows the audience by crying as a demonstration of « method acting. » I’m disappointed.
Later I recall Zen master Bankei:
« My only miracle is that I eat when I am hungry and that I drink when I am thirsty. »
