    No Time to Die

    What's up, 007?

    It's not an easy question to answer, these days.

    He was young and hungry when Daniel Craig took over the role in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. Then he was suddenly old and outdated (Skyfall). After surviving his twenty-fourth official adventure, Spectre, it was harder than ever to say what the Bond films were really all about.

    Once upon a time it was not that complicated. Bond was Sean Connery and then he was Roger Moore.…

    It seems that movies have stopped dreaming. Maybe moviegoers have also lost their imagination. Fantasy holds no borders, it's said, and really film should be the medium where we live out our fantasies. But in Hollywood, the script goes through the lawyers and the businessmen. There is a lot you want to make sure of, now more than ever. You must absolutely not cross any borders. You do not want too much bad PR or - even worse! - be…

    Some quick post-notes on Aftermath

    I have to jolt down my notes on this now as I will likely forget about them later on. Aftermath is one of many examples of movies as work. I don't mean work for you and me, though you may think the movie is a chore to sit through, but work for the people involved. The movie is a textbook example of manufactured demand. Everyone is here to have something to work on.…

    Fake TrixΒ² - Enter the Monotheistic Monodrone

    The speeches provide not meaning, but the effect of meaning: It sure sounds like those guys are saying some profound things.
    Roger Ebert; The Matrix Reloaded (review, 2003)

    God is a fascist, God is a racist
    Because God don't like poor people
    and God don't like black people
    And he doesn't fucking like you,
    he forgot about you long ago.
    Hang God.

    Catching up with Bergman 16/20

    Elliot: Hi. I'm Elliot Gould. Is this a Bergman movie? It seems I'm in Sweden.

    Bibi: Oh, yes hello, we're two Swedish actors who have worked with Ingmar for more than twenty years, let's speak English for a while

    E: Okay, um. Here's a line for you, Bibi: I love you

    B: You do?

    E: Yes

    B: I probably love you too

    E: That's fine.

    B: I mean I'm not sure. I'm pregnant?

    E: Sorry,…

    Pan's Labyrinth


    After eight years, it's a bit of a letdown to find that PAN'S LABYRINTH really isn't a film about any labyrinth of Pan's but rather a film about a Spanish fascist general killing or torturing a bunch of people. In the confused moral landscape of the film, fascism seems to constitute "reality"; so I guess we're all fascists at heart, unless we live in fantasy worlds of course.

    The film is imaginative but I found it to be a bit…
