Since its very beginnings, there has been an intense debate of what should be the aesthetic use and the function of cinema. This debate has become to be known as the Lumière/Méliès Dichotomy, due to its principal representatives: the brothers Lumière and Méliès.
Auguste and Louis Lumière, that were initially photographers, thought that cinema should represent reality as it is, and should not have any aesthetic or artistic purposes. They filmed moments of life, such as some workers leaving a factory (Workers Leaving the Lumière Factory, 1895), a man watering the plants (The Sprinkler Sprinkled, 1895), or the entrance of a train in the station (Train Pulling into a Station, 1895).
On the other hand, George Méliès, an illusionist and magician, found cinema a new way of portraying fantasies and creating illusions, with films like A Trip to the Moon (1902) or The Impossible Voyage (1904). He created surprising scenes with resources such as jump-cuts or double exposures, in what we could consider the beginnings of special effects.
These conceptions are still a source of debate to some filmmakers and cinema academics, while for others this frontier is not so clear and these approaches do not need to be exclusive of each other.
Where does reality start and where does fantasy? Isn’t the very fact that the Lumière brothers filmed reality what made it a non-reality already? Isn’t it possible to portray reality through several props, costumes or special effects that recreate realities to perfection?
What do you think?

Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore in Goldfinger (1964).
In order to avoid controversy, producers suggested to change her name to Kitty Galore, but due to the British press refering to her as Pussy, the name remained the same.
