QUANTUM GENRE: Weird and Wonderful Cinema

I’m happy to report that my “Weird and Wonderful Cinema” article is included in V. Ulea’s anthology, Quantum Genre in the Planet of Arts, which Paraphilia Magazine will be publishing in E-book format within the next couple of weeks. I feel honored, especially because my contribution is the only one about film in this unique collection of short stories, flash fiction, book interpretations and other artistic works.

In keeping with the Quantum Genre concept, “Weird and Wonderful Cinema” describes a meeting of my Current Self, Past Self and Future Self as we revise film reviews for three movies -- The Fountain, Mulholland Drive, and Sliding Doors -- to include new Quantum Genre perspectives. I hope the article is as much fun to read as it was to write!

I’m sure you’re wondering what Quantum Genre is all about. It encompasses style-based rather than theme-based efforts. As explained in a manifesto published by Sein & Werden, although these Quantum Works are NOT about quantum theory, they deal with quantum representation of characters and their worlds. “The style is distinguished by a high degree of obscurity of both narrative and characters which are subject to mutability and ambiguity.”

If a “Weird and Wonderful Cinema” film treatment gets the greenlight, you can see why I want David Lynch or Tim Burton to direct. :-)

  • Betty Jo! I love your quantum genre concept and look forward to reading your piece. Thinking outside of the box feels so right! The 21st century is a time of massive change. Old ways of thinking have boxed us into corners. It takes courage and faith to look at possibilities from unlimited perspectives. Bravo to your open mind!
