Johnny Guitar x 65

Um dia um jornalista perguntou ao João Bénard da Costa qual o filme da sua vida. Ele que editara um livro magistral sobre "Os Filmes da Minha Vida". O director da Cinemateca Portuguesa respondeu num ápice: "Johnny Guitar" (1954) de Nicholas Ray. E para reforçar o seu amor pelo filme, insiste: "ao longo da minha vida vi-o 65 vezes". Cinquenta e cinco vezes que viu o mesmo filme! Mesmo vindo de um cinéfilo à moda antiga, não deixa de ser, aos olhos comuns, uma certa manifestação patológica por um objecto cultural. Como se explica? Provavelmente, da mesma forma como se explica que se ouça uma música dezenas, centenas ou milhares de vezes sem que o cansaço ataque o nosso espírito. É certo que a música e o cinema são duas linguagens estéticas diferentes e a sua fruição é, também ela, feita de forma diferente, mas não deixa de haver paralelismos. Se retiramos prazer auditivo quando ouvimos à saciedade uma música, porque não há-de alguém retirar prazer audiovisual (ou de outra ordem) de um filme?
Seja como for, o caso do João Bénard da Costa não deixa de ser invulgar. No meu caso, é verdade que há filmes que revejo e revejo e que não me cansam, enquanto outros me causam náuseas logo no primeiro visionamento (aconteceu-me há dias com o inenarrável "Mr. and Mrs. Smith). Mas não sei se algum dia conseguirei visionar 40, 50 ou 65 vezes o "Vertigo" ou "Sede de Mal". É que também há limites para o prazer estético.
