With film, we’re watching people do things. The eye moves around. With a play, our view of the stage never changes. It’s the characters that move. It’s what the characters say that changes. When you have a medium based on what the eye does, you have an amoral medium, because the eye is amoral. The eye will watch anything that moves, or glistens, or glitters, or pulsates. It won’t make a judgment about whether a thing is good or bad, or good for you or bad for you. When you see people talk and hear what people say, you are always automatically judging whether what they’re saying is just or not, useful or not, helpful or not, good or bad.
