Putin Interviews Part 2 English Subtitles

PS

Stone literally watches Dr. Stranglove with Putin, which is surreal.

The reckless provocation of Russia in stark terms. Skip the ignorant blowhard gibberish until 2:41:00…

 

 

PS.

German MP voices similar case.

Sahra Wagenknecht, deputy chair of the German Die Linke (Left Party), criticized the government’s decision to send a military party to battle Islamic State terrorists in Syria.

In an interview with Die Welt she said that the decision, agreed upon in Vienna, was “sheer lunacy” that could precipitate a Third World War.

“Germany is entering a big war with a huge potential for an escalation… If in Syria we are also going to fight Russia, the conflict may degenerate into WW3,” Wagenknecht warned.

This was a fun little indie comedy that was claustrophobic and stuck in one location. I’m partial to opening up the environment somewhat, and single location films sort of grate on me.

The people are pretty funny though, although all the humor is dialogue driven. So there’s a lot of talking about relationships and interpersonal problems. It also completely botches the reality of the weapons (poor science), but I can’t remember any film about anything that had scientific accuracy.

But it’s a comedy, and so we give more leeway. What’s good about the film is that these people are such self-absorbed, oblivious, useless assholes that watching them face the apocalypse is sort of cathartic in and of itself. None seem worthy of surviving, and the world doesn’t seem to be losing much as a result. I thought the ending scene could have been drawn out and developed a bit more. It seemed rushed and implausible. They could have mined it a bit deeper, and I would have been more gushing in my praise.

3/5
