Johannes Binotto: Practices of Viewing XI – Sleep

You are not supposed to sleep during a film.
But what if sleep is recognised as not an obstruction but as an essential element of experiencing cinema?
I remember those times I dozed off in the theatre and how I began to intermingle and flow together with those images I saw through my half closed, half open eyes. Maybe the ultimate a film could want to achieve is to make you fall asleep so you can wake up into its dream.
