Not a cult of death this

«At his dawn, the world must have been full of the same regal indolence.»

«Fate takes the form of a drunken guest.»

«The Mexican mocks death. (…) Not a cult of death this, not the stillness of stone or the awesomeness of stone idols… No! But man’s triumph over death through mockery of it!»

– Eisenstein, “Que viva México!”, 1932
