Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
You can see all sorts of things in film acting if you know where to look and what to look for. One thing I often notice is that the actor is looking for his mark, the place where he has to stand to be in the right place in the shot.
And film acting is incredibly tedious, just by its nature. It's incredibly, mind numbingly slow.

The difference - the fundamental difference between theater acting and film acting is that film acting is disjunctive.
