Marwencol, Skin and some crap

   At The Cinema                           

Two Movies + a -

This is a truly amazing deal. - From PBS (full movie HERE):

"On April 8, 2000, Mark Hogancamp was attacked outside a bar in Kingston, New York, by five men who beat him literally to death. Revived by paramedics, Mark had suffered brain damage and physical injuries so severe even his own mother didn’t recognize him. After nine days in a coma and 40 days in the hospital, Mark was discharged with little memory of his previous life.

Unable to afford therapy, Mark decided to create his own. In his backyard, he built Marwencol, a 1/6th scale World War II-era town that he populated with dolls representing his friends, family, and even his attackers. He used the small dolls and props to redevelop his hand-eye coordination, while he dealt with the psychological trauma from his attack through the town’s many battles and dramas."

Here's anothr film I watched over the weekend.

First, it has good looking lesbian (aren't they always) schoolgirl sex.  That's one thing.  The second thing is the acting is  pretty damned good.  The third thing, and the real reason I'm even talking about it, is that Paulie, the spurned party of this affair, goes off the deep end.  Totally psycho.  There are at least three times you will expect that parents will be called, and Paulie expelled.  But, oh-no.  This is a statement about compassionate   Liberalism.  The adults in charge are oh-so progressive, loving, understanding, well meaning, and just darned nice.  The people who wrote the screenplay,  backed it financially, and promoted it  are comfortable with all of it. It's in their comfort zone; it's  what they know, and see as good.  I'd have sued the shit out of them if I was Mr. Paulie. . 

Oh. wait.  I nearly forgot.  Because I viewed Lost and Delirious, Netflix recommended Sacred (not  Scared, or Scary; but Sacred) Love-Making (I will not link this crap).  I watched two minutes.  Here's the best review you will find anywhere.

Sacred Love Making?  Sacred?  This is the worst film ever made in someone's basement for $200 and a gram of cocaine for the starswhom I will guess couldn't find work in a proper porn movie.  The thoroughly unctuous guy with the long curly hair?  I wanted to unscrew his head and throw it down an old well. Yes, all this in two minutes.  Could have done it in 30 seconds, but it was like watching an accident; I lingered. .


Obama. Kerry. Iran . Arghhhhhhhhh!

More historic than Jimmy Carter's snookering of Kim il-Jong




If Obama and Kerry were men of good character, which they are demonstratively not,  then this could be chalked up to more Liberal, Chamberlaineaque, naivety.  Instead it is one of two things, and since we here seem to be of the same mindset, we all know what they are.

  1. Obama and Kerry are incredibly stupid men, who have no record of performing a single selfless act, and whose careers are nowhere if not for the protection and promotion of a hard Liberal and sycophantic media. I mean, puh-leeeze.  Kerry. who lied under oath to congress about what  he observed in Vietnam, and who later headed a group that voted on whether to assassinate United States Senators!?  And Obamawho supposedly wrote and had published two books  before he had served two years  in Congress? 
  1. There is no second thing.  Both are performers in a play that is about, in Obama's own words,  Reclaiming Rewriting the American Dream so that it suits them and their sponsors.
