This teaser slogan for Jonathan Parker’s (Untitled) is straight out of Tom Wolfe’s “The Painted Word,” to wit: “Not ‘seeing is believing,’ you ninny, but ‘believing is seeing,’ for Modern Art has become completely literary: the paintings and other works exist only to illustrate the text.”
I love that Corinth Fillns believes enough in people’s interest in seeing a 61-year-old Vittorio DeSica classic in a modern-day movie theatre that will hit them up for $12 bucks plus popcorn and drinks. Seriously — I really love this. This is basically New York City in a nutshell. You wouldn’t see this ad in the Orlando Sentinel (or whatever the paper is called down there).
