Simon of the Desert (1965) - The Criterion Collection
"SYNOPSIS: Simon of the Desert is Luis Buñuel’s wicked and wild take on the life of devoted ascetic Saint Simeon Stylites, who waited atop a pillar surrounded by a barren landscape for six years, six months, and six days, in order to prove his devotion to God. Yet the devil, in the figure of the beautiful Silvia Pinal, huddles below, trying to tempt him down. A skeptic’s vision of human conviction, Buñuel’s short and sweet satire is one of the master filmmaker’s most renowned works of surrealism."

"Find enclosed one Batmans..." — I love Watchman, but hated the movie - that aside,...
I pretty much only liked the opening credits (and the fact that all the accessories were correctly dated). the movie said everything and nothing about the transformation of new york city in the past twenty years.

k-punk: "They killed their mother": Avatar as ideological symptom
doesn't get at any of the other ways that Avatar is bullshit, but still: "'There's nothing we have that they want,' concludes Sam Worthington's Jake Sully of the Na'vi. Yet the Na'vi predictably seduce Sully, who quickly 'forgets everything' about his former life on earth (about which we learn almost nothing, beyond the fact that he is a marine who got injured in the course of battle) and embraces the wholeness of the Na'vi way of life. Sully attains wholeness through his avatar Na'vi body in a double sense: first, because the avatar is able-bodied, and, secondly, because the Na'vi are intrinsically more 'whole' than the (self-)destructive humans. Sully, the marine who is 'really' a tree-hugging primitive, is a paradigm of that late capitalist subjectivity which disavows its modernity. There's something wonderfully ironic about the fact that Sully's—and our—identification with the Na'vi depends upon the very advanced technology that the Na'vi's way of life makes impossible."

k-punk: Post-Apocalypse Now
this would make more sense if I had read any lacan ever: "Capitalist realism keeps attention on the ephemeral plenitude of wealth and social status, containing the nullity of ecological catastrophe as an anamorphic blot at the edge of vision. It has the advantage that such an operation is already routinely at the level of individual psychology in respect of death, whose repression no doubt one of the ‘falsities’ that, according to Nietzsche, is necessary for life. So one tactic is to stop imagining eco-catastrophe and Realise it – which is not to say bring it about, but to act as if it has already happened. . . . The only way to prevent the catastrophe . . . is to project ourselves into the post-apocalyptic situation and think what we would have done to have avoided it. In other words, we must act as if what is in fact the case—the inevitability of catastrophe—is the case. The simulation, the as-if, is necessary in part because the Real . . . can only emerge in the form of a fiction."
