Meet Mario: The Man and the Metaphor
A metaphor enables understanding of one thing by calling it another; a miracle of language, a sacred transubstantiation. An actor may be seen as a metaphor for the character he portrays. He lives passionately:"The very next instant, Mario had an orgasm so noisy, bubbly, wild, bizarre, barbaric, and apocalyptic that the roosters thought it was dawn and began to crow with their crests held high, the dogs confused his shrieks with the southern night siren and barked at the moon as if fulfilling an incomprehensible commitment..."In dying (in the film), Mario, the actor and the hero, creates his own love poem.
