Filmology

Lola On Film is designed to deconstruct the spectacle, measure empty calories, offer nutritional insights on films newly released, as well as archival treasures (and junk), assess the state of film culture, and illuminate cinema’s place in society, as well as in our individual psychology.

In Filmology I go a bit more esoteric, contemplating on film, psychology & the metaphysics of cinema, focusing on the moving image as a therapeutic tool:

Chernobyl HBO Aftermath: Seeing In The Dark

Film, the Alchemical Medium: Archetypal Enchantment and the Transformative Potential of the Moving Image

The ABC Murders & Fascism Redux

Film vs. Death: One More Time With Feeling (revisited)

Sharp Objects, and the Initiation of the Screen She-Shaman
