At New York Film Festival, Quasi-Reality Bites... →
When a movie’s engagement with reality is at once impossible to miss and difficult to define, we frequently say it’s like a documentary. The comparison, however, is anything but straightforward, since there are so many different ways a film can document (or distort) the literal truth. The 46th New York Film Festival includes a striking number of features — among them some of the strongest and...

The Baader-Meinhof group, a left-wing terrorist collective born of the student revolutions of the Sixties, terrorised West Germany with a series of bombings, assassinations and hijackings in the Seventies. On the eve of a new film about the movement, Neal Ascherson - who met key members of the group as The Observer’s correspondent in Germany at the time - reflects on the legacy of those...

valido: O.M.G. Il seguente post è stato scritto al ritmo di una riga ogni 45 minuti per moderare l’emozione. È nato un nuovo sito. Si chiama Sequelin. Ci scrive Valido. In pratica ci scrive i seguiti dei film inventati. Cioè, scrive i seguiti dei film veri, ma se l’inventa. Si inventa i seguiti. I film sono veri. I seguiti sono inventati. Da Valido (e altra gente). Esatto. Avete capito bene....

OBAMA What would you do?
BARTLET Get angrier! Call them liars, because that’s what they are. Sarah Palin didn’t say “thanks but no thanks” to the Bridge to Nowhere. She just said “Thanks.” You were raised by a single mother on food stamps — where does a guy with eight houses who was legacied into Annapolis get off calling you an elitist? And by the way, if you do nothing else, take that word back. Elite is a good word, it means well above average. I’d ask them what their problem is with excellence. While you’re at it, I want the word “patriot” back. McCain can say that the transcendent issue of our time is the spread of Islamic fanaticism or he can choose a running mate who doesn’t know the Bush doctrine from the Monroe Doctrine, but he can’t do both at the same time and call it patriotic. They have to lie — the truth isn’t their friend right now. Get angry. Mock them mercilessly; they’ve earned it. McCain decried agents of intolerance, then chose a running mate who had to ask if she was allowed to ban books from a public library. It’s not bad enough she thinks the planet Earth was created in six days 6,000 years ago complete with a man, a woman and a talking snake, she wants schools to teach the rest of our kids to deny geology, anthropology, archaeology and common sense too? It’s not bad enough she’s forcing her own daughter into a loveless marriage to a teenage hood, she wants the rest of us to guide our daughters in that direction too? It’s not enough that a woman shouldn’t have the right to choose, it should be the law of the land that she has to carry and deliver her rapist’s baby too? I don’t know whether or not Governor Palin has the tenacity of a pit bull, but I know for sure she’s got the qualifications of one. And you’re worried about seeming angry? You could eat their lunch, make them cry and tell their mamas about it and God himself would call it restrained. There are times when you are simply required to be impolite. There are times when condescension is called for!
