BYOB – Apolitical

Yeah… we’re almost there.
No… I’m not going to stop just because we’re close.
Yeah… by the end of next week, you will see the last political post in here for a long while.

BYOB – Apolitical

For those who really do come here exclusively for movie stuff… sorry… kinda…
The election is, I feel, much more important and the behavior being exhibited lately is so extreme that silence about it seems like acceptance (see: The Clintons)… I can’t live with that.
But here is some space for something else.
And there will be more movie stuff as we come to the end of the election cycle.
Meanwhile, there is lots of good stuff on the cover of MCN, including the closing part of The 48 Hrs Diaries, 4 looks at Paul Newman (1, 2, 3, 4), a look at German cinema, Wilmington reviews and more.
And in BYOB, any ideas you feel like throwing out there….

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.

Bing!

One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
~ Donald Trump
