Cronenberg and Rushdie

Just saw this link, a conversation between Salman Rushdie and David Cronenberg. They discuss, among other things, the perception that novels are a superior art form to cinema, censorship, making audiences faint (Rushdie at a book reading, Cronenberg because...well, have you seen any of Cronenberg’s films?), and whether computer games can be Art. Read.

  1. Wondered what you thought about Rushdie's remark about cricket not being art. I would tend to agree: while I guess cricket can be played artistically, it isn't quite art for that. Video games are a different matter altogether of course. I haven't played Myst and keep feeling I'm missing out on something seriously brilliant.
