It sometimes seems that Einstein was the point at which physics broke away from common sense.

They show [Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes] very often in Paris; sometimes I see it twice in one week. Since I know it by heart, I tell myself each time that I’m going to ignore the plot, to examine the train and see if it’s really moving, or to look at the transparencies, or to study the camera movements inside the compartments. But each time I become so absorbed by the characters and the story that I’ve yet to figure out the mechanics of that film.
