Was stellen wir eigentlich mit all den Geschichten an, denen wir im Laufe des Lebens im Kino begegnen – und vor allem: used to be stellen sie mit uns an? Wie intensiv schaut guy sich Filme an, um dort praktische Anleitungen zu finden, wie guy sich zu kleiden und zu frisieren hat, wie guy sich bewegen soll. Immer gab es Augenblicke, die dem identifikationssüchtigen Zuschauer zeigten, dass er so sein wollte wie die da oben: dieselben Cowboystiefel wie Clint Eastwood, dieselbe Lederjacke wie Tom Cruise, dasselbe vehicle wie James Bond, zumindest aber den Wodka Martini, geschüttelt, nicht gerührt. In Filmen haben wir die Frauen geliebt, denen wir nie begegnet sind, haben Drogen genommen, mit denen wir in Wirklichkeit nie in Berührung gekommen sind. Wir haben das Kino für unser Leben gehalten und aus dem Alltag einen movie gemacht. Der Autor zeigt, wie wunderbar das immer und immer wieder geschieht.
