Brilliant filmmaking, and the second I saw the trailer I knew this was my kind of movie.

This is a satirical drama from Iceland, and it’s also a great tour of Iceland. Locations span the gamut. It’s also tightly plotted with elements that all pay off by the end.

American films could do this kind of story, but they don’t.

We have a real revolutionary, a one-woman army, and being a woman’s story, there’s also the mom angle. In this case she has to adopt, so if she’s caught as Iceland’s greatest industrial saboteur then that’s the end of her motherhood.

I feel I’ve said enough already, and you’ll get the rest from the trailer. Funnily enough, there’s a selection of musicians that also follow her around making the soundtrack during the scenes! It’s utterly hilarious, particularly when the tuba player retweets some news. This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in 2019.

Corporate censorship erasing a major revolution from history as we speak. Turn off your stupid televisions and start investigating the world for yourself.

It’s starting to look like Kiev.

I’d have more sympathy for the cops if they weren’t repeatedly caught beating the shit out of random protesters.

(A Book Review)

By David William Pear, August 6, 2018

 

A Book Review and Commentary on Andre Vltchek’s new book: “Revolutionary Optimism, Western Nihilism”, by David William Pear

How can I write a review of Andre Vltchek’s new book Revolutionary Optimism, Western Nihilism? I am damned if I do, and damned if I don’t. Andre himself says that:

There is nothing to add to the writing of maverick revolutionary philosophers. Hands off their work! Let them speak! Editions without prefaces and introductions, please; no footnotes! The greatest works of philosophy were written with heart, blood and passion! No interpretation is needed. If allowed to read them, even a child can understand.”.

He is speaking about the works of other great revolutionary writers, not himself. I think Andre is a great revolutionary writer, too. But, who am I to speak for Andre? Read his great works for yourself, and you will understand them without my introduction. You will find that Andre has the guts to put himself out there, let it all hang out, and expose his vulnerabilities as well as his wisdom…

But I am damned if I don’t write a book review for Andre’s book, because I told him I would give it a try. I don’t want to let him down. This is the best I can do. So, you can stop reading right here if you wish, and just buy Andre’s book and let him speak to you for himself.

Our struggling revolutionary artists whom still speak and write the truth need all the support we can give them. That goes for the alternative media site you are reading this on. We are in a war, an information and propaganda war. Truth tellers are an endangered species. The Empire is trying to shut them up and shut them down.

There are a few must-see shows going around these days. I’ve posted extensively on Orphan Black. Black Mirror is another. Humans. The Strain will be the subject of an upcoming review. Mr. Robot should join their ranks.

This is an odd take on technology, revolution, and mental illness. Elliot is a freak, an oddball who seems to be on medication in every scene. He turns unreliable by the end of Season One, but not before taking down the financial system and inflicting quite a bit of damage on “Evil Corp.”

I love the revolutionary spirit, the cult like hacker collectives, the skullduggery. It’s a paranoid thriller with twists you cannot see coming.

One thing that sets it apart–for good or bad–is the unconventional framing of the shots. This show takes lots of cognitive work to follow. It may give you a headache, particularly if you attempt to watch…
