I feel honored, especially because my contribution is the only one about film in this unique collection of short stories, flash fiction, book interpretations and other artistic works.
In keeping with the Quantum Genre concept, “Weird and Wonderful Cinema” describes a meeting of my Current Self, Past Self and Future Self as we revise film reviews for three movies -- The Fountain, Mulholland Drive, and Sliding Doors -- to include new Quantum Genre perspectives. I hope the article is as much fun to read as it was to write!
Just in case you’re wondering about what constitutes Quantum Genre, it emphasizes style-based rather than theme-based efforts. Although these Quantum Works are NOT about quantum theory, they deal with quantum representation of characters and their worlds in a style distinguished by a high degree of obscurity of both narrative and characters which are subject to change and ambiguity.
If a “Weird and Wonderful Cinema” film treatment gets the greenlight, you can see why I want David Lynch or Tim Burton to direct! J
