Movie of tomorrow: Brando and Clift

Switch off the sound and watch this little gem as a silent movie.
The movie of tomorrow will be more personal than an individual and autobiographical novel; like a confession, or a diary. This is a quote by Fran├žois Truffaut. I came across it on Video Pancakes, where Mary C. Matthews posts her intimate journal films.
Truffaut actually went on to describe the movie of tomorrow, claiming it would resemble the person who made it, while the number of spectators would be proportional to the number of friends the director has.
I will exit this week on a simple note: it is so beautiful that Brando and Clift, as they were, goofing around and laughing, were caught on film. I bet Brando was returning to this little recording of his life more than to his films. Because… all those… moments will be lost… in time… like tears… in the rain… Remember?
