But it is precisely in the burlesque dimension that this 'too far' becomes movement of world which saves him and will make him a winner. His body is shaken by spasms and various currents, successive waves, as when he is going to throw the dice (Hollywood or Bust). [Deleuze Cinema 2, 1989: 63a]

Mais voilà que, dans la dimension burlesque, ce « trop » devient un mouvement de monde qui le sauve et va le rendre gagnant. Son corps est agité de spasmes et de courants divers, d'ondes successives, comme lorsqu'il va lancer les dés (« Hollywood or bust »). [Deleuze Cinéma 2, 1985: 88d]
