How about the new Hunger Games movie? I enjoyed the rendering of The Capitol. Or, as one film reviewer put it, "Nuremberg meets Dubai." A fascinating look at how decadence is depicted in a film aimed at teens. The entire Hunger Games spectacle could also be chalked up to "sacralized depravity": kids killing each other on a reality show to the amusement of jaded plutocrats.

I understand that Jonathan Frid passed on after the filming of Dark Shadows - the series being the coolest soap opera ever. The writers were swarthy-minded and had no regard for our spindly notions of credibility: I thought it was the coolest thing in the world when Quentin (and when I think of him I see Engelbert Humperdinck, for whatever reason) was recast from wraith to werewolf.

In doing some post-posting research I learned I missed an episode: Quentin was also a zombie.

13: The preview for the Tim Burton film looks hilarious:

It seems like Burton may be rekindling his decadent-meets-suburbia trope he did so well with Edward Scissorhands, this time with an undead vampire in 1970s England. Goth meets Mod! It's looks gorgeous and ridiculous. But isn't that the point?

Rewatched The Fifth Element by Luc Besson for the first time in years. Wonderfully garish costumes by Jean-Paul Gaultier, a techno opera sequence, and Milla Jovovich kicking butt in a non-Resident Evil movie. The plot is a hokey New Agey space fantasy, but it is a great example of fin de siecle cinema of the 1990s.

ah yes... that explains all the smutty brows today:

- T. S. Eliot

Because I do not hope to turn again
Because I do not hope
Because I do not hope to turn
Desiring this man's gift and that man's scope
I no longer strive to strive towards such things
(Why should the aged eagle stretch its wings?)
Why should I mourn
The vanished power of the usual reign?

Because I do not hope to know again
The infirm glory of the positive hour
Because I do not think
Because I know I shall not know
The one veritable transitory power
Because I cannot drink
There, where trees flower, and springs flow, for there is nothing again

Because I know that time is always time
And place is always and only place
And what is actual is actual only for one time
And only for one place
I rejoice that things are as they are and
I renounce the blessed face
And renounce the voice
Because I cannot hope to turn again
Consequently I rejoice, having to construct something
Upon which to rejoice

And pray to God to have mercy upon us
And pray that I may forget
These matters that with myself I too much discuss
Too much explain
Because I do not hope to turn again
Let these words answer
For what is done, not to be done again
May the judgement not be too heavy upon us

Because these wings are no longer wings to fly
But merely vans to beat the air
The air which is now thoroughly small and dry
Smaller and dryer than the will
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still.

Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death
Pray for us now and at the hour of our death.


Lady, three white leopards sat under a juniper-tree
In the cool of the day, having fed to satiety
On my legs my heart my liver and that which had been contained
In the hollow round of my skull. And God said
Shall these bones live? shall these
Bones live? And that which had been contained
In the bones (which were already dry) said chirping:
Because of the goodness of this Lady
And because of her loveliness, and because
She honours the Virgin in meditation,
We shine with brightness. And I who am here dissembled
Proffer my deeds to oblivion, and my love
To the posterity of the desert and the fruit of the gourd.
It is this which recovers
My guts the strings of my eyes and the indigestible portions
Which the leopards reject. The Lady is withdrawn
In a white gown, to contemplation, in a white gown.
Let the whiteness of bones atone to forgetfulness.
There is no life in them. As I am forgotten
And would be forgotten, so I would forget
Thus devoted, concentrated in purpose. And God said
Prophesy to the wind, to the wind only for only
The wind will listen. And the bones sang chirping
With the burden of the grasshopper, saying

Lady of silences
Calm and distressed
Torn and most whole
Rose of memory
Rose of forgetfulness
Exhausted and life-giving
Worried reposeful
The single Rose
Is now the Garden
Where all loves end
Terminate torment
Of love unsatisfied
The greater torment
Of love satisfied
End of the endless
Journey to no end
Conclusion of all that
Is inconclusible
Speech without word and
Word of no speech
Grace to the Mother
For the Garden
Where all love ends.

Under a juniper-tree the bones sang, scattered and shining
We are glad to be scattered, we did little good to each other,
Under a tree in the cool of the day, with the blessing of sand,
Forgetting themselves and each other, united
In the quiet of the desert. This is the land which ye
Shall divide by lot. And neither division nor unity
Matters. This is the land. We have our inheritance.


At the first turning of the second stair
I turned and saw below
The same shape twisted on the banister
Under the vapour in the fetid air
Struggling with the devil of the stairs who wears
The deceitul face of hope and of despair.

At the second turning of the second stair
I left them twisting, turning below;
There were no more faces and the stair was dark,
Damp, jagged, like an old man's mouth drivelling, beyond repair,
Or the toothed gullet of an aged shark.

At the first turning of the third stair
Was a slotted window bellied like the figs's fruit
And beyond the hawthorn blossom and a pasture scene
The broadbacked figure drest in blue and green
Enchanted the maytime with an antique flute.
Blown hair is sweet, brown hair over the mouth blown,
Lilac and brown hair;
Distraction, music of the flute, stops and steps of the mind over the third stair,
Fading, fading; strength beyond hope and despair
Climbing the third stair.

Lord, I am not worthy
Lord, I am not worthy
but speak the word only.

Who walked between the violet and the violet
Who walked between
The various ranks of varied green
Going in white and blue, in Mary's colour,
Talking of trivial things
In ignorance and knowledge of eternal dolour
Who moved among the others as they walked,
Who then made strong the fountains and made fresh the springs

Made cool the dry rock and made firm the sand
In blue of larkspur, blue of Mary's colour,
Sovegna vos

Here are the years that walk between, bearing
Away the fiddles and the flutes, restoring
One who moves in the time between sleep and waking, wearing

White light folded, sheathing about her, folded.
The new years walk, restoring
Through a bright cloud of tears, the years, restoring
With a new verse the ancient rhyme. Redeem
The time. Redeem
The unread vision in the higher dream
While jewelled unicorns draw by the gilded hearse.

The silent sister veiled in white and blue
Between the yews, behind the garden god,
Whose flute is breathless, bent her head and signed but spoke no word

But the fountain sprang up and the bird sang down
Redeem the time, redeem the dream
The token of the word unheard, unspoken

Till the wind shake a thousand whispers from the yew

And after this our exile


If the lost word is lost, if the spent word is spent
If the unheard, unspoken
Word is unspoken, unheard;
Still is the unspoken word, the Word unheard,
The Word without a word, the Word within
The world and for the world;
And the light shone in darkness and
Against the Word the unstilled world still whirled
About the centre of the silent Word.

O my people, what have I done unto thee.

Where shall the word be found, where will the word
Resound? Not here, there is not enough silence
Not on the sea or on the islands, not
On the mainland, in the desert or the rain land,
For those who walk in darkness
Both in the day time and in the night time
The right time and the right place are not here
No place of grace for those who avoid the face
No time to rejoice for those who walk among noise and deny the voice

Will the veiled sister pray for
Those who walk in darkness, who chose thee and oppose thee,
Those who are torn on the horn between season and season, time and time, between
Hour and hour, word and word, power and power, those who wait
In darkness? Will the veiled sister pray
For children at the gate
Who will not go away and cannot pray:
Pray for those who chose and oppose

O my people, what have I done unto thee.

Will the veiled sister between the slender
Yew trees pray for those who offend her
And are terrified and cannot surrender
And affirm before the world and deny between the rocks
In the last desert before the last blue rocks
The desert in the garden the garden in the desert
Of drouth, spitting from the mouth the withered apple-seed.

O my people.

Although I do not hope to turn again
Although I do not hope
Although I do not hope to turn

Wavering between the profit and the loss
In this brief transit where the dreams cross
The dreamcrossed twilight between birth and dying
(Bless me father) though I do not wish to wish these things
From the wide window towards the granite shore
The white sails still fly seaward, seaward flying
Unbroken wings

And the lost heart stiffens and rejoices
In the lost lilac and the lost sea voices
And the weak spirit quickens to rebel
For the bent golden-rod and the lost sea smell
Quickens to recover
The cry of quail and the whirling plover
And the blind eye creates
The empty forms between the ivory gates
And smell renews the salt savour of the sandy earth This is the time of tension between dying and birth
The place of solitude where three dreams cross Between blue rocks But when the voices shaken from the yew-tree drift away Let the other yew be shaken and reply.

Blessed sister, holy mother, spirit of the fountain, spirit of the garden,
Suffer us not to mock ourselves with falsehood
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still
Even among these rocks,
Our peace in His will
And even among these rocks
Sister, mother
And spirit of the river, spirit of the sea,
Suffer me not to be separated

And let my cry come unto Thee.

I followed the link. "Foreign" is a genre?

This is actually that rare beast, a Belgian feature film; specifically it's Harry Kümel's follow-up to "Daughters of Darkness". It exists in two versions, one seen at Cannes in 1972, and a "Director's Cut" (with a Dutch soundtrack) released the next year, and about 20 minutes longer.

By pure coincidence, I watched it this evening.

Set 29, 2013, 3:27 pm

Malpertuis is one of my favorite films. The Belgian Film Institute DVD has both cuts, the director's cut being substantially different and superior, not just a matter of a few added scenes. A unique movie, and well worth hunting down.

A trailer for the upcoming Chris Evans actioner, Snowpiercer:

Of note are the snippets of decadence of those who live in "the front." And Tilda Swinton as a Margaret Thatcher-esque Iron Lady who runs the train's cod-fascist dictatorship.

Jun 1, 2014, 3:54 pm

Swinton as Thatcher would be pure genius.

Jul 2, 2014, 11:47 pm

Just saw Snowpiercer and it was really great. Propulsive action, really dark, and highly entertaining. Excellent set design, costuming, and script. And an unrecognizable Chris Evans as the Big Damn Hero. Swinton is marvelous. It's her year, between this and the Jim Jarmusch vampire movie (not to mention the David Bowie video).

I first saw him years ago in a PBS aired Crime and Punishment - as Rodion Raskolnikov. He's also in the John Hillcoat/Nick Cave film, The Proposition as an (appropriately whiskey soaked) English bounty hunter in the Australian outback. This film also features Guy Pearce, whose creepy brilliance shines in anything he turns up in (His Fernand made a sappy version of The Count of Monte Cristo watchable).

Jul 7, 2014, 2:42 pm

I first saw John Hurt as Quentin Crisp in The Naked Civil Servant - a mid-afternoon reshowing of the TV play in 1976, by my reckoning.

World on a Wire.

Editado: Set 12, 2014, 7:53 pm

>70 DavidX: A superior piece of SF. Over and above the story, an amazing piece of cyberpunk before the term was thought of, Fassbinder makes amazingly stylish use of limited resources. Characters are dressed in retro 40's outfits and placed in an environment of 70's high modernism. I'd guess this is the influence of Godard's Alphaville, but the lurid colours evoke Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, and Roxy Music's contemporary retrofuturism. You feel Kraftwerk must be just out of shot in the bar scenes, quietly sipping mineral water.

109: "But Barney’s world is also quite insular. There’s a preponderance of small, claustrophobic spaces. Spent, febrile, or hapless heroes go through absurd motions. Some tunnel or climb; others dance or simply sit. Cloistered, all seem focused on some single activity. Roland Barthes wrote about the “ceaseless action of secluding oneself”; Edmond de Goncourt about “subtle and elegant depravity.” All this links Barney to the languorous realm imagined by J.K. Huysmans in Against Nature, with its sapped, isolated protagonist, and his visions of the female genitalia as a Venus flytrap." -- "Swept Away" by Jerry Saltz; review in The Village Voice

He’s also sui generis, a solitary cosmonaut broken free from the Earth’s gravity and sending back intriguingly garbled transmissions from the edge of the solar system."
