Enjoying 'The Inglorious Bastards'

Wanted to spot Lea again so watching again, and one word to describe this movie would be 'panache'

Waltz, Pitt, Fassbender..nice casting and acting

Re: Sapere Aude

So I think Waltz winning an Oscar for that role was absolutely deserved.

And.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role
WINNER
The Blind Side: Sandra Bullock
NOMINEES
An Education: Carey Mulligan
Julie & Julia: Meryl Streep
Precious: Gabourey Sidibe
The Last Station: Helen Mirren

I've seen 3 movies except the last two, and I don't think Sandra is a bad choice at all. Were Sidibe and Mirren good?

And why is the Oscar Winner 'Hurt locker' so hard to come by at the library, just checked the website and a lot of them are reported missing Is this a sensitive movie..?

Re: Sapere Aude

Didn't know Samuel Richardson's mega best seller 'Pamela' was deemed pornographic by its detractors

Also John Cleland parodies Richardson's avowed technique of letter writing as a truthful account and a mean of revelation of inner thoughts by his heroine Fanny Hill;

"I see! I feel! the delicious velvet tip! - he enters might and main with - oh! - my pen drops from me here in the extasy now present to my favorite memory!"

Re: Sapere Aude

Watched the 1st 30 min. of 'Argo' so far.

I don't get how this film won the Oscar for best movie.

I've read the original book. The movies seems a bit crudely made..

Now I want to watch 'Zero dark 30' for comparison

The only movie so far I've seen is 'Life of Pi' and I think this is better than Argo already

Best Motion Picture of the Year
WINNER
Argo: Grant Heslov, Ben Affleck, George Clooney
NOMINEES
Amour: Stefan Arndt, Margaret Ménégoz, Veit Heiduschka, Michael Katz
Beasts of the Southern Wild: Dan Janvey, Josh Penn, Michael Gottwald
Django Unchained: Stacey Sher, Reginald Hudlin, Pilar Savone
Les Misérables: Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Debra Hayward, Cameron Mackintosh
Life of Pi: Gil Netter, Ang Lee, David Womark
Lincoln: Steven Spielberg, Kathleen Kennedy
Silver Linings Playbook: Donna Gigliotti, Bruce Cohen, Jonathan Gordon
Zero Dark Thirty: Mark Boal, Kathryn Bigelow, Megan Ellison

Re: Sapere Aude



I wonder what Stanley Payne (pro Spain-that includes Franco too. He professed that his bete noir is Azana ) thinks about these passages

p279

"With Spanish control in Italy came traditional Spanish values - hierarchy, lineage, deference, piety and militarism - that rapidly smothered the vibrant mercantile and university life of Italian city states"

p280

"Spain's honour-driven vendetta culture"

So that vendetta was imported from Spain to Sicily?

The book basically asserts that Spain is the culprit that smothered the Renaissance

Re: Sapere Aude

As early as 1644, Milton was for divorce in the case of irreconcilable differences.

It was finally allowed in Britain, in...1969 by the Divorce Reform Act

Re: Sapere Aude

borrowed a bio of Palmerston, who is now treated favorably, not as a jingoist boor

Next, want to read bios of Wagner and Nixon.

Re: Sapere Aude



Reading this made me want to read Thomas Mann and Arthur Schniztler.

But..why the German fetish for suicide in its literature A lot of its protagonists kill themselves in the end as a closure! Or is it an European phenomenon?

Ritchie Robertson also points this out in the last page, 392.

"intellectual daring and moral strenuousness, the propensity for crisis, peril, and self-sacrifice, could also be degraded into corrupt rhetoric and criminal actions that led to barbarism and disaster"

So..is the Sonderweg (Special Path) theory still relevant? That Nazism was not an 'aberration'?

Re: Sapere Aude

I'm liking Lynne Olson more and more.



Her books really make the conservatives uncomfortable

FDR vs Lindbergh, should be good

But I'm not the only one eager to read this; 7th on queue on the hold list on my library

Re: Sapere Aude

Just finished the Economist section of Sperber's bio of Marx.

The Neoclassicals are DISTINCT from Adam Smith, Ricardo, Stuart Mills, in that they rejected their assumption of a labor theory of value.

Actually Marx is closer to them than the neoclassicals, yet they dare to obscure that fact and propound that THEY are the descendant of Smith and etc.

Along with the '2nd Amendment as an unalterable right' tricksters, two of the biggest frauds in the Modern Era
