"It is well known that after his lectures, Wittgenstein was in the habit of dashing off into the cinema to indulge in Westerns. We are not in a position to say wether this detail has been taken into account in Derek Jarman's film." (Jill Feming for JBG Networks, Three Owls, Monument Valley)

"Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent." (Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus logico-philosophicus, London 1022)
