Limitless Cinema in Broken English

These are my comments in my friends’ Facebook:

–FILM WISH LIST: DAZZLE (2009, Cyrus Frisch)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFWtJ5aDCH0

Olaf Möller wrote that DAZZLE is “an obvious allusion to the Dutch Royal Family’s well-known allegiance with Argentinean fascists (the Crown Princess’s father was secretary of state during the Videla dictatorship).

–RETROSPECTIVE WISH LIST 1: Carole Roussopoulos, a Swiss filmmaker who directs ANGELA DAVIS SPEAKS GENET (1970), MASO AND MISO GO BOATING (1975), PROSTITTUES SPEAK OF LYONS (1975), SCUM MANIFESTO (1976), “RAPE, ANNE, CORINNE, AND OTHERS” (1978), DEATH DID NOT WANT ME (1984), “INCEST, CONSPIRACY EARS PLUGGED” (1988), and “MUTILATED WOMEN, NEVER AGAIN!” (2007).

–NOTES TO A FRIEND WHO IS A FILM PROGRAMMER

As for your project “THINKERS AND CINEMA”, I suggest you also do a research on:

1.Christian Metz
http://www.ejumpcut.org/archive/onlinessays/JC05folder/FilmLangMetz.html

2.Fredric Jameson
http://www.amazon.com/Geopolitical-Aesthetic-Cinema-System-Perspectives/dp/0253209668/ref=sr_1_16?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1276361623&sr=1-16
“Jameson’s sophisticated and theoretically informed readings stress the ways in which disparate films — for example, Godard’s Passion, Pakula’s All the President’s Men, Yang’s The Terrorizer, Tahimik’s The Perfumed Nightmare, Tarkovsky’s Andrei Roublev — confront similar problems of representation. The solutions vary widely but the drive remains the same — the desire to find adequate allegories for our social existence.”

3.Henri Bergson

  1. Carole just died last year. You can find information about her at:

    I would like to see SCUM MANIFESTO very much, because this film stars Delphine Seyrig, and is about the writing of Valerie Solanas, the woman who shot Andy Warhol:

    ” A reading by the actress Delphine Seyrig of the S.C.U.M. Manifesto, a text by Valérie Solanas published in 1967.

    With book in hand, Delphine Seyrig faces the director, Carole Roussopoulos, as she types the text out. In the background at the center of the frame, a television screen displays live images of the days’ television news with the sound off. Seyrig begins reading the S.C.U.M. Manifesto and Roussopoulos types the text. The sound of the typewriter keys, the return of the typewriter carriage and the actress’s voice are layered over one another, creating an omnipresent sound that rhythmically punctuates our discovery of the text. The first sentences proclaim that “the male is a genetic accident, an incomplete woman, a walking abortion. To be male is to be deficient.””
