The little-dick film snobs lost their shit over this:

 

However, feature-length narrative cinema made by mostly white male auteurs dominated the collection. These are not the films that need seeing or saving. They may not circulate widely in popular culture, but they account for almost our entire institutional and disciplinary canon. And despite the collective anxiety about their disappearance, they will endure in archives, film studies programs and, yes, even online …More radically, however, we might ask whether these are the works we need to rescreen or urge others to discover.

 

FilmStruck wasn’t that good for movies. Don’t mourn its demise.

 

What an absolute gift it would be to escape the corrupt inheritance of the auteur — a 20th-century invention; film scholars have the receipts — and the long shadow of a canon that has compelled generations of students to mimic the powers of patriarchy and colonialism, to play at corporate theater, or to wonder about their own exclusion from what they see on screen.

Powerful Hollywood Women Unveil Anti-Harassment Action Plan

This British import arrived, and I knew not how nor why. But it’s a marvelous period piece, and the period is 1940. It’s also a movie about making a movie, and the characters are the screenwriters.

This nuanced tale tackles the sexism of the day. The main character is a Welsh girl who is suddenly called up by the Ministry of Information to help write “the slop,” which is female dialogue for their propaganda films.

When Dunkirk inspires a heroic rescue story, the plot kicks into gear. A news article praises a pair of sisters who stole their drunken dad’s boat to join in the rescue. The government functionaries decide this is grade-A propaganda to inspire the working class to go fight the Germans.

What an embarrassing, despicable, cretin this guy is. Any women who voted for him should be in therapy.

Ashley, I reposted your Ted video. There it is. You’ve said your piece, and you have been heard. Such is the case when one’s name is well known, the luxury of being famous. Fame is a type of power.

My own piece regarding Hillary Clinton’s part in the killing of approximately two million human beings was ignored when I posted it to your Facebook page. You placed yourself into politics as an unquestioning supporter of Hillary. Politics is an ugly struggle for power, and in that realm the currency is propaganda, molded, blinkered views, edited, scripted talking points.

Not truth. God no. No politician alive cares a damn thing about the truth.

Granted, Hillary Clinton’s military actions were not targeted at white female Hollywood liberals, and so as far as “identity politics” goes, we can see how that demographic would have no reason to personally fear a Clinton presidency.

The Hillary Clinton supporters, like Barack Obama’s supporters, like Bill Clinton’s supporters all agree that when in power they can bomb at will the brown people in their home countries because those people simply cannot bomb them back.

So what has happened to real, living women in Libya, in Syria, in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Eastern Ukraine as well? That is the tip of the issue, and the issue is that invisible, yet brutal global military empire, which people like you cannot see or acknowledge exists.

You would think that Hillary Clinton’s direct dealings with the tyrants of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Bahrain, etc. would be a tip-off, a sign that not all is as it seems on TV. These are the worst regimes on the planet in regard to women’s rights.

The Clintons, like the Bush clan, know where to shake their donation cups. They know what their oil sheikh patrons desire in the bargain, and that is mostly high-tech weaponry so as to expand their fiefdoms and to attack their neighbors, as Saudi Arabia today attacks Yemen directly and Syria through its proxy armies (ISIS/Al Nusrah/Al Sham).

But what’s the point of continuing? Without the fame to act as a catalyst the truth has literally no value in this society. This post is worthless, despite the fact you cannot disprove a single phrase.

I find your own concerns warranted, but you are now on a slippery slope. Once censorship is the norm then the truth is the first casualty. Politicians don’t want to be held accountable, and wedge issues like yours act to open the door to outright banning of views and the silencing of dissenters. As you should be able to see, the truth is already unpopular and unwelcome.
