Abstract

In 2006, the actress Tilda Swinton delivered a ‘State of Cinema’ address at the Kabuki Theatre during the San Francisco International Film Festival. Early in the address, Swinton remembered a conversation with her father: ‘Dadda was telling me that his falling asleep in the cinema is a particular honour to the film in question. He was telling me this as a compliment, his having snored through three of the four films released last year in which I appeared’ (2006: 111).
