Cioran once watched a Tarkovsky film (inadvertently) and now believes this has given him the ability to write about cinema, although no one has really explained to him that it’s near impossible to make a living this way. It’s unclear whether he will lose interest in the misadventure any time soon. Many hope he will. Along with being a prodigious waster of time (his as well as others’), he also writes infrequently about other things, more of which can be found at www.callenine.com. You can also follow him at @CalleNine.
