It's an interesting idea to use film theory for polls. I am skeptical about Andrew's idea that there is an ever-increasing freedom in filmmaking styles though, if that's what he suggests.

I modified the list to name in as Dudley Andrew,

Yeah, I'm not sure that I agree with his theory too,

But he is way more knowledge than me on cinema, he has probably seen way more movie than most of us on cinema, His observations can be close to an overall future that he is seeing.

But, This poll is not to judge if the theory is wrong or not, I'm simply the messager, I didn't write the theory.

cinephile,

It finally got through. I seriously do not know why this triggered the spam filter or caused someone with admin right delete previous attempts. Curious.
