Re: Recently Watched Films 2017

https://filmgrab.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/6410.jpg?w=1000&h= The Third Man , written by Graham Greene (!) and directed by Carol Reed. A ridiculous plot with an idiotic protagonist that is a lot of fun. The emotional impact of the final scene is, despite being completely unearned, weirdly affecti...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2017

Loved Personal Shopper - i would argue that the trip to Oman was crucial because the phantasmal incidents only occur when she is at peace, or at a distance from her guilt, whereupon it remanifests itself. this is, of course, only my interpretation...

Re: top 50 of the last 50 years

this is so tough so to make it easier: no classical records (apologies Olah and Feldman), no compilations of previously recorded works, just the LP's. One album per artist. Umm Love - Forever Changes (1967) Captain Beefheart - Trout Mask Replica (1969) Miles Davis - Bitches Brew (1970) Chico Buarque...

Re: I Hate America

lol people who use 'strawman' are the wretchedest people in the world i take your point Jon, but I still disagree: Trump was famous before The Apprentice, which only bolstered his fame: indeed, it could be argued his appearance in the public consciousness was as a result of his books, but no-one is ...

Re: I Hate America

Trump's emergence is due to an extraordinarily complex tangle of structural iniquities and, imo, the foregrounding of identity politics that elide from discussions of class (not that I think identity politics are in any way bad) and, let's be real, a system that isn't 'broken' but that is working to...

Re: I Hate Television

Can anyone think of a TV show with copious amounts of nudity that isn't a terrible action/historical/fantasy shitshow? Something still and meditative, as slow as television as a medium allows?

Also ya Mr. Robot is on the up, when it's contrived it's contrived as hell but when it's on it's ON
