Open Letter to the Getty

Dearest People of the Getty,

I love that your world-class museum is a mere 20 miles from Atwater Village.

I love that you open your doors to all, for free.

But if you're screening a film famous for consisting of one, uncut 90-minute take, doesn't it sort of ruin the point to project from a 35mm print with missing frames?

It's like exhibiting the Mona Lisa with her eyes poked out.

I know the film's distributor has recently faded away, but I imagine a visual arts organization with your clout ought to be able to secure a pristine print.

Or at least screen it digitally! (That's how it was shot, no?)

Your Humblest Fan,
Atwater Villlage Newbie
