029-shadows

 

There are two sides to cinema. It can be used to impart goodness and virtue and morality and justice.

And we also see that scene from Inglorious Basterds, where Hitler appreciates the Nazi sniper film, and it’s genuinely moving.

I see filmmakers without scruples all the time. They are a malignant and very real force. One glance at all the corporate propaganda (commercials) shows the power of cinema and its debasement in the service of selling whatever the “client” happens to be pushing into the world. The same tricks sell wars and political shysters.

That is the reason I run this blog.
