The Unpossessable Possessor 2

The film machine attempts to appear managerial. If one were to ask the film machine what the requirements for this behaviour are, it would say, “It is necessary to begin at the bottom and work up. One must possess organisational ability, persistence, a capacity for enthusiasm and leadership.” If one were to question the recipients of its administrative behaviour, they would say, “The film machine is obstinate and dictatorial. At the same time, it is obsessed with impressing others. It can accomplish much when in the right mood, but when depressed, finds it difficult to even get started, and then, much of what results is a mess.”
