UM EXEMPLO BANAL DE CONDICIONAMENTO DO LIVRE ARBÍTRIO

Caderno, 8 p.
ABSTRACT: A BBC article (August, 23rd) entitled The 21st Century’s 100 Greatest Films that presented The best that cinema has had to offer since 2000 as picked by 177 film critics from around the world, was republished in Portuguese by the Observador with the title David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive” is considered to be the best movie of the century. This attempt to determine 21st Century’s Greatest Films in the year 16 is just a crude example of how established and self-appointed opinion makers try to constraint future generations’ views and aesthetics by imposing, or trying to impose, a control over future choices with a permanent reference of comparison. In other words, by declaring this early that David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive” is the best movie of the century they are in fact keeping it artificially alive and forcing both future critics and future filmmakers to quote it, or see it, as a reference.
