What’s Wrong with the Movies? by Aleister Crowley in Vanity Fair, Jul 1917.

“One could go on for hours describing the fatuity of the movie men. It is not that their ideas are necessarily wrong in themselves, but that they are inappropriate—and in bad taste. They forget that the author has thought out all his contrasts and values, and even a better author could not alter them without destroying them utterly.” [via]
