Allergy To Originality

Allergy To Originality

As we find ourselves in the thick of summer blockbuster season (see: X-Men: Days of Future Past; Transformers: Age of Extinction; Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes), we feel it's only right to revisit Drew Christie's brilliant New York Times Op-Doc "Allergy to Originality." As the animated short so aptly reminds us by channeling Mark Twain, "All ideas are secondhand." So regardless of whether you head to theaters to see Boyhood or Hercules, enjoy the cinema for what it truly is--the art of simulating experiences, that communicate ideas, stories, perceptions, feelings, beauty or atmosphere by the means of recorded or programmed moving images along with other sensory stimulations. (Yes, we pulled that from the "Film" Wikipedia page.)
