inner workings

Filming a scene, there are countless takes of the same incident. Someone watching in the street—obviously a provincial—can’t get over it: “After this, I’ll never go to the movies again.”

One might react similarly with regard to anything whose underside one has seen, whose secret one has seized.

—E.M. Cioran, The Trouble With Being Born (Arcade, 1998), translated by Richard Howard
