Non-Traditional Viewing Practices

Nathan’s reminiscence of watching The New World on his laptop reminded me that, at Cannes this year, no less august a cinematic eminence than David Cronenberg rhapsodized to me about how much he enjoys watching movies on his laptop, propped on his stomach as he lies in bed, perusing a few chapters at a time the way one reads a book, and having an altogether different – but by no means illegitimate – experience of cinema than one has in a proper theater.
