There are few things more difficult. More difficult. Than divining the truth as it is happening.
Happening? The truth happens. Or is.
We don’t know. Prague Spring. PRAHA.
Did you know that Ceaușescu condemned the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia? Really.
Fascinating. We hear that name and we think bad guy. Maybe. We do.
Youthful errors. I can only affirm the brilliance of this film in absence of French comprehension.
In absence of Italian comprehension.
In absence of Czech comprehension.
In absence of Marxist comprehension.
You will notice the monolithic structures as a Western capitalist on the outside looking in.
On the inside perhaps some saw provisions for all.
Heat in winter. Food on the table. Poverty squelched or shared.
It explains why this film is barely in print. You must remember how radical the Dziga-Vertov Group was.
You either find it brave or you find it disgusting…like the Aden Arabie cell from La Chinoise. Juliet Berto chanting
…as if brainwashed.
Skoda. Now owned by Volkswagen. How ironic?
Skoda. Founded by two Vaclavs.
There is a 20-year gap in Skoda’s history on Wikipedia. Škoda Auto. My guess is we can thank Volkswagen for “cleaning up” the history a bit. They cleaned a little too well. Now there’s a hole. And it’s noticeable.
Two shirtless fat men. Two Vaclavs? I have no idea. But these gents make it all worthwhile…shoveling dirt in front of a post office. One of the two so impressively hirsute (back and front) as to have a pseudo-shirt.
Socialism was a belief in something. The U.S. lost the Vietnam war. Little debating that. And now Vietnam is socialist (at least in name). Did the globe stop spinning? Of course not.
These are not brave details. I have been much more bold before.
She was so beautiful as to make us cry.
We stood no chance.
She never smiled.
Not like the first one..
To understand Marx. To understand European socialism. To understand Russia riddle enigma matryoshka. Through the lens of Dostoyevsky. Karamazov. Religion. Culture. Vast expanses of land…
I may be at the end of the world. It may be necessary for me to take a step back.
Mmmm…to be intoxicated by something so bizarre, so rare, so taboo, and so unknowable…for now.
It is why Alex Jones’ films fail. They are artless. Had he channeled Godard there would have been no stopping his cinema.
But the spectacle is where James Clapper, much to his own chagrin, realizes that “deceit deceives itself” (to quote Debord).
TPTB have never grasped the coded messages in Shostakovich. Stylometry can only undermine a Snowden email. If that.
Like Dylan I have no big answers.
You will be punished for thinking. That.
Guileless in Seattle.
We are getting closer to the truth. Dangerously close.
You will know knowledge hack. Coined term. Here. Like 4’33” Cage.
Life hack. Kryptos.
Somebody forgot to take their medicine.
We can joke.
Did Ezra Pound’s punishment befit his crime? His crime? [DHS] [[VHS]]
Should keep several good intelligence analysts busy for a week.
Several petaflops of drivel occupied.
To not be fucked with.
Moloch in Bohemia.
Just keep the angles which predate Orson Welles. Dziga. Vertov.
The Académie française will never accept. Their loss.
Propaganda will always show blood dripping from fangs…even if blood is dripping from fangs.
We could make a deal. He says.
Rights reserved, wrongs reversed.
Elision says stylometry.
This is not a film review.
Think on your sins.
Gets to feeling like a powerful shit. Ripe for manipulation.
A lot of things can happen to dog shit.
Flash tits change world.
Sure, you know what’s going on…but you don’t REALLY know.
Two-way mirror of social media. Instant fame.
We’ve been trained to utter scumbag.
Twice. de Chirico.
Yep. Someone else has caught the scent. Freud cerebral. Marx visceral.
The angles converge. Méliès. Rampling, Charlotte. Trampoline.
I need a love to keep me happy. Keith Richards said that.
It is the most fertile field of Godard study.
This key-logging software is really slowing me down.
Doesn’t matter. We take the stairs.
AIPAC, Carole King, Black Maria?!?
Now you know the key. Of a different sort.
