( ) is a 2003 silent film directed by Morgan Fisher. The film consists entirely of insert shots extracted from feature films, considering the "status of the insert shot in an ingenious way", according to film expert Susan Oxtoby.[1]

Fisher said of his movie, "Inserts are above all instrumental, they have a job to do, and they do it; and they do little, if anything, else. Sometimes inserts are remarkably beautiful, but this beauty is usually hard to see because the only thing that registers is the news, the expository information, that the insert conveys... By chance, I learned that the root of 'parenthesis' is a Greek word that means the act of inserting. And so I was given the title of the film."[2]

( ) was screened on October 18, 2003, during the New York Film Festival,[3] and on September 13, 2004, at the 2004 Toronto International Film Festival as part of the Wavelengths programming.[4]
