Repetition takes you, as subject-viewer, back to attempt to see "what is" and back into, and out from, the process of material-effects-in-film. Constant reification/non-reification forces an inability to make natural either of these levels of the cinematic. Impossible arrest. The exhaustiveness brought to bear by repetition empties out either side of the contradictorily operative film function. The viewer is thus placed in aspace of demeaned, demeaninged cinematicity: attempts at representation, defences against such. The norm for meaning becomes, thereby, non-isolable film-usage: film as materialist social function through the work at hand.
