These are my comments in my friends’ Facebook:
–FILM WISH LIST: DAZZLE (2009, Cyrus Frisch)
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:
“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.”
