Nothing that formal, really.
Asking anyone who might be interested to do a movie/tv show review… not a review as much as indulging in some cultural crit.
Several “political” films I’d love to hear decons on (together eventually): Children of Men, Syrianna, The Constant Gardener, Michael Clayton, and The Good Shepherd. Emphases… gender!!! certainly, and also not-so-political content like the characterization of redemption. What do the story or the characters actually hold some mirror to in the ‘real world’? Review-like stuff is cool, too. What about direction, performances, writing, music, photography, et al?
Even good cross-posts. Bound to be this kind of thing already afoot, just disparate.
De and I once talked about someone wrestling the Lord of the Rings film-trilogy.
These things are popular, so they already have peoples’ attention. Might be a way to begin talking to different people.
Another project fantasy… Detailed, attentive, episode-by-episode decons on the Law & Order tv phenomenon… and not just polemical stuff against the most obvious problems… what kind of need is filled by a cultural product like this?
I just really would like to watch some of these movies with y’all… virtually, as it were.
