[The following is quotation]
First of all, the locations lose the organic life which encompassed them, traversed them and situated them in a set: the purely functional prison in Rio Bravo does not even need to show us its prisoner; the church in El Dorado no longer bears witness to anything but an abandoned function; the town of Rio Lobo is reduced to 'a diagram, now only showing functions, a bloodless town condemned by the weight of a past'. (169d, emphasis mine)
