21st-Century Cinephile

The 21st century cinephile is quite different from previous generations’ cinephiles. Previously, most cinephiles went to the movie theaters often to watch films, some of these films being crazy and eccentric. However, as Susan Sontag pointed out, cinema is in a state of decay, and movie going has increasingly become an obsolete pastime. Nowadays, cinephiles are people that go online to different sites looking for wild and revolutionary films and watch them. Most of them however also follow contemporary films and also follow Netflix, Hulu, etc.
