The answer to this question is no easy matter. Long ago the a Japanese novelist
Shiga Naoya presented an essay written by his grand child as one of the most
remarkable prose pieces of his time. He had it published in a literary magazine. It was
entitled” My dog” and ran as follows:
“ my dog resembles a bear: he also resembles a badger: he also resembles a fox……”
It proceeds to enumerate the dog’s special characteristics, comparing each one to yet
another animal, developing into a full list of the animal kingdom. However the essay
closed with,” but since he’s is a dog, he most resembles a dog.”I remember busting out
laughing when I read this essay, but it makes a serious point. cinema resembles so may
arts. if cinema has very literary characteristics, it also has theatrical qualities, a
philosophical side, attributes of painting and sculpture and musical elements. But
Cinema is, in the final analysis, cinema. Excerpts From : something like an
