A controversy made the US news some years back. It was about whether Jesus was a Palestinian or not, and the arguments got rather amusing. Jews, who hate Jesus(and wish He'd never existed) and despise Christianity above all religions, suddenly got very possessive of Him. He was a Mizrai Jew, not a Palestinian Jew, they... Read More
Legal issues aside — I suppose there is no lawful recourse to ban women from participating in fight sports — , what are the cultural consequences of entire societies, even the whole world, taking delight in the spectacle of women beating the crap out of each other? Is it related to recent decisions to allow... Read More
There are several ways to approach this question. Yes, the Beatles were indeed the greatest Rock group, or no, other bands were superior and ultimately more significant as influence. Or, the Beatles were indeed the best but in the Pop than Rock idiom. In other words, the Rolling Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin... Read More
  This is not an overview of the entire film, which was reviewed and analyzed on this site but a consideration of an aspect of the work. But first, EYES WIDE SHUT has become a Christmas Movie of sorts among the 'sophisticated' crowd. Some years back, I attended a packed art-house Christmas screening. Christmas is,... Read More
There's been a lot of buzz about Peter Jackson's latest Beatles documentary GET BACK. I haven't seen it nor am I eager to. Peter Jackson made his name with Art Horror(the vile and disgusting HEAVENLY CREATURES), Fantasy(the interminable THE LORD OF THE RINGS, the longest dungeons-and-dragons video game), and Adventure(the remake of KING KONG, fun...

The following concerns the psychological culture of a community that would dare turn the world upside down for its tribal aggrandizement. What kind of a culture would produce the sort of individuals willing to sacrifice the well-being of the entire world in service to an agenda that tirelessly invokes justice only to force the greatest...

The December issue of Chronicles features several articles on Cinema and Politics from the right-wing perspective. They are well-worth reading. The following critique focuses on the center piece of the issue, Paul Gottfried's despairing of the transformation of Hollywood from honor-bound moralism to sadistic nihilism. More interesting than left or right, liberal or conservative, is... Read More
This is an Open Thread of sorts because, most likely, many of you(or most of you) know more about the art/science/ritual/tradition/culture of hunting than I do. Actually, I know nothing of hunting as I've never hunted myself. And though I totally support gun rights, I've never owned guns or fired one myself. My personal curiosity... Read More
I've never been a fan of Frank Sinatra or any popular singer/ musician of the 20th century prior to the advent of Rock. I much prefer 19th century music, such as Civil War songs, to much of 20th century popular music. I can appreciate the talent of men like Gershwin, Armstrong, Berlin, Rodgers & Hammerstein,...

"Before disco, this country was a dancing wasteland. You know the Woodstock generation of the 1960s that were so full of themselves and conceited? None of those people could dance." – Charlotte Whit Stillman's films are mainly known for their dialogue and have been compared with the works of Eric Rohmer. And yet, music plays... Read More
As memes go, "Okay Boomer" goes a long way. Though on surface hardly damning or even insulting, it stings precisely because the boomers made such a big deal of themselves. Nothing they did was just 'okay'. It was meant to be 'world shaking', like Cool Hand Luke's antics. The Boomer Bible would have us believe... Read More
