I really enjoyed all these prepositions and now will digest them while Vargas takes that well earned break!

I have looked back through these clever posts Vargas and look forward to reading more after your break.

My first love is literature. But literature is so old, as a named art, that it now produces only half a dozen or so notable books each century. Words are tired (which is perhaps why they're so overused these days).

Yet your list of notable films through a lens of prepositions reminds me of the gush of great cinema we experienced in the 1900s. A new art was born! Humanity was passionately obsessed! And even aesthetically parsimonious I am forced to say that at least 50 great films were realized in 100 years
