lgs' comment in response to my question about the meaning of "cinematic pietas"
is very useful to me  in trying to sort out what i admitted was my own
confusion about the matter , and i'm grateful for it . . . but i'm puzzled by
one of its conclusions, to wit:
"In order to analyse the meaning of "cinematic pietas" we do not need to
answer any of these questions, but to analyse how "meaning" arises we do."
i'm sorry to say i just can't imagine how we can construe meaning in a single
particular case if we don't first understand in general what it is that we do,
 or ought to do, when we construe meaning at all
