dear mr. art of memory, it's been a while. i wonder can you look up in your big filmographic brain whether you know the movies of a certain Peter Weiss, swedish german writer, artist and also moviemaker in the fifties. could they be like the ones by Kluge? and isn't it something nice to fantasize about how on earth would films have looked like that have been directed by Musil?
pleased to see sufficient amounts of greyness here.

not sure, been reading musil though lately, always such a pleasure.
