    To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them.

    Ultimately unsatisfying. It has some good scenes, but there aren't enough of them to resolve the messiness of the film as a whole. Things are left unresolved, scenes are put together that shouldn't be put together, and the ending's ambiguity seems more a product of laziness than aesthetic judgement.

    I thought it was pretty good, had some interesting discussion of AI/philosophy of mind stuff.

    It Follows. Alright for a horror flick. Doesn't make much sense though as pretty much everyone would die in their sleep (you'll get the point when you start watching it).

    I rewatched Dr. Strangelove with friends recently who had not seen the film. Sadly, their grasp of English isn't perfect, and we didn't track down a copy with subtitles. Perhaps we'll watch it again some weekend.

    Slow West, a western with surreal elements and beautiful cinematography. Some moments of brilliance, can definitely recommend it.

    I was considering watching that but the trailer seemed odd. You seem to have a good taste in films though so I'll check it out.

    The vivid colours made half that movie for me, if you see it do see it in good quality.

    I watched The Big Short, which I had missed earlier. It's pretty entertaining and well acted. Most noteworthy is its choice of topic and perspective, covering the 2008 economic crisis by following traders betting against the housing market, along with an assortment of worse scumbags.

    I was most impressed by Steve Carrell in this, who played a somewhat serious and sympathetic role.

    That was a good film. Don't understand how anyone who's watched it didn't back Sanders, Stein, or someone further to the left.

    I watched Durak (or The Fool) yesterday and I thoroughly recommend it.



    EDIT: Whoa, do not watch this trailer, it is filled with spoilers.

    Saturday Night and Sunday Morning: Angry young English working guy tries to stay young, wild, and free but his foxy girlfriend wants a family and a nice house, and so ... another good man bites the dust! You can apparently watch the whole film from this cite.

    Highly recommend it.

    Also, the original members of Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners support Corbyn, as do the miners, and they wrote this during the coup last year:

    LGSM statement of support for Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign to be re-elected Leader of the Labour Party

    We are original members of Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (1984-85). Many of us are individual members of the Labour Party.

    Jeremy Corbyn has been an active supporter of LGBT rights for his whole political life. He supported equality in the 70s and 80s, long before it became more mainstream or fashionable. He did so at a time when the Labour leadership repeatedly obstructed the Party’s commitment to LGBT rights because of concerns about media criticism. And he did so when speaking up for the rights for LGBT people brought hostility, ridicule and victimisation. From struggles against Section 28, through fighting for an equal age of consent, right up to equal marriage, Jeremy Corbyn has always stood shoulder to shoulder with the LGBT community.

    He is a lifelong internationalist and opponent of racism, imperialism and war, fighting for the rights of black and minority ethnic communities and migrant workers. He was arrested protesting against apartheid.

    Jeremy was also an absolutely steadfast and tireless supporter of the miners and the mining communities in the 1984-85 strike against pit closures, and again in the early 90s. He took the side of the miners when many in the Labour movement, to their shame, looked the other way or actively betrayed the strike. We always knew what side he was on.

    The defeat of the strike in 1985 and the subsequent decimation of the mining industry paved the way for the weakening of the entire Trades Union movement and the takeover of the Labour Party by people who supported the agenda of privatisation, massive inequality and attacks on the rights and living standards of ordinary working people.

    We believe that his election as Leader of the Labour Party in 2015 was a reflection of the hope that the Labour movement can once again stand up for the interests of the 99%.

    We also believe that the on-going attacks on him by elements of the Parliamentary Labour Party and the mainstream media are an attempt to defeat the policies upon which he was elected leader by 59.5% of the membership and to maintain their control of the party.

    We express our confidence in Jeremy as leader of the Labour Party and offer him our full support in his campaign to become Prime Minister at the head of a Labour Government committed to peace, ending austerity and tackling the housing crisis, unemployment, poverty and inequality.

    For this reason, we wholeheartedly support his present campaign to be re-elected Leader of the Labour Party and urge our wider supporter network to do the same. Many of our present allies, amongst them the Durham Miners’ Gala, have already declared their support for Jeremy’s campaign, and it is only right that we should too.

    We believe that LGSM should never forget its friends.

    Solidarity forever!

    I just saw Goya's Ghosts

    A wonderful movie but it leaves one repeating the religious insight of Campanella.

    Great scene from it:
