unpublished note concerning
In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni

It is necessary that the second film[1] -- and especially if it is rather "lyrical-subjective" -- has a very violently critical-political side (very subversive shocking). For example: on the horror of current society, its shameful poverty (living conditions, food, illusions and neuroses), on the executives, their declarations, their thought (something like "On the Poverty of the Executive Milieu," in the genre of the notes by Alice [Becker-Ho] . . .).

The passage can be this: how the time that passes has led us to another world: the "good" and "bad" of this;

1) the good: I transmit to my epoch the malady of subversion
2) the bad: how this world is disfigured (giving this as reason for our critique)

For example, to show: this is no longer a question of aesthetics.

The experts critique or reassure.

But their illusions: what they accept, believe, love. . . .

The spectators (proletarians in this, but ashamed) don't even have a past.
