Cinema nerds, rejoice! Totally awesome news comes from The Oxford English Dictionary, as it has announced over 100 film terms will be added to its collection, according to Indie Wire.
Over 100 might seem like a ridiculous amount before you consider all of the different subgenres that exist today, such as the addition of "mumblecore," adjectives we often use to describe a filmmaker's artistic techniques, for instance "
“Lynch is noted for juxtaposing surreal or sinister elements with mundane, everyday environments, and for using compelling visual images to emphasize a dreamlike quality of mystery or menace.”
Ok, this is awesome: The term "Lynchian" is now an official entry in the Oxford English Dictionary: https://t.co/rqqKUycXVB— IndieWire (@IndieWire) October 4, 2018
