A Chorus

Public + Screen

There are several directions in the conceptual thought: the Greeks, style ("Kabuki" is only a code name), Anti-Oedipus (Delueze and everything postmodern -- Freud, reinterpretation of the arch-type, such as Jesus with "another" father and the Son killing the Father; New vs. Old and etc.)

The Japan's old erotic prints (filmplus.org/03): the passion between mother and son...

2005: Total Acting & Total Directing *

from dictionary:

** hamartia is the word used in the original Greek of the New Testament for "sin". The King James Version has 172 instances. [ sin -- symbol? ]

Oedipus's tragic flaw is "his special ability to solve riddles, his detective ability, one might say, or his intellect. Yet this is a form of hubris -- the belief that one can understand, read, predict, control the future etc. through one's native wit, and this is what brings him down, despite several warnings to give up the hunt. Reason = Apollo." [ image ]

Socrates's dictum, "The unexamined life is not worth living"!

Arthur Miller wrote, "The flaw, or crack in the character [of Oedipus], is really nothing -- and need be nothing -- but his inherent unwillingness to remain passive in the face of what he conceives to be a challenge to his dignity, his image of his rightful status. Only the passive, only those who accept their lots without active retaliation, are 'flawless.' Most of us are in that category." Miller adds that "the terror and the fear that is classically associated with tragedy" comes from questioning the unquestioned.
