"The grim aspects of prostitution...." Oh, PLEASE!!!! One could just as easily say "the grim aspects of marriage" as well (or "the grim aspects of working at Walmart"). Many women are forced into marriage for financial security; or because they became pregnant; or because their boyfriends want sole claim on their bodies.
And yet, just like for prostitutes, there are marriages 'made in heaven' where the couple spend their lives being happy together. And yes, there are MANY prostitutes who do enjoy sexual freedom... until the government comes in and takes that away... for their own good... and once branded as a prostitute, they become unemployable anywhere else.
I am always so disappointed when a group of people (gays and lesbians) who have known oppression and who have had similar biased, ignorant opinions expressed about them (ie: 'you are a lesbian because you were raped by a man when you were a child;' 'there are no happy gays because it is an immoral lifestyle and can never find fulfillment committing crimes against nature'.. 'you can be cured of your homsexuality'...etc.) continue to express the same old, tired BS about people doing sex work. Are there some sex workers who fit the stereotype? yes, of course and there are some gays and lesbians who are self-loathing or who hate the opposite gender for whatever reason.
Stop perpetuating the same old 'prostitute as victim' ideology and join with us to liberate us from archaic laws which allow us to be exploited by law enforcement officers and by the media which loves to give an unhappy ending to our lives. If the ending IS unhappy, it is because once we have been arrested, our lives will never be the same and we are traumatized by the fear that at any moment the cops may bust into our homes and cart us off to jail again for selling something we can otherwise legally give away to as many men/ women as we like... as long as it is for free!
Sorry, Mr. L, I forgot the coda to my note.
The wit and brilliance of your title does honor to my work.
Let me put it this way --
If it weren't already copyrighted I'd steal it.
Dear Mr. Lanthier
Thank you for reviewing Kron and Dark•matter.
My new films, as they go out into the world, are going to need all the friends they can get, and your long, generous, incisive review will help them on their way.
While I disagree with some of your comments, your general perspective on what's going on in the two films surely fascinates me
-- because you are seeing them from the outside while my own perspective is limited to inside-out.
(I certainly agree with you that the one film picks up where the other leaves off.
Dark•matter is now finished, by the way, effective the night of the Anthology screening.)
So when the quiet moment allows, I will pick up your review again --
and savor your perceptions -- and see upon which of them I can build.
Thank you again, Milton Ginsberg
Yea, but Chaplin was great!
I have just finished watchimg"gods little acre"movie.why Robert Ryan did not win an acadamy award for his great acting in it,amazes me!.
[..]Not everyone involved in the film got what to do with their Aryan behemoth of a leading man. - absolutely love this sentence !
Mark Asch’s review of Dark Shadows is a murky attempt to malign the creative magic of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. Asch’s review is tedious and pretentious. It is littered with run-on sentences, several of which are incomprehensible. Of course, Dark Shadows has some problems, beginning with its marketing. The trailer misrepresents the film as a light comedy, rather than what it is: a poorly cast attempt at the original soap opera’s loveable campiness. But it is unfair to ignore the film’s stunning visuals and unique dystopian world created under Burton’s direction. If the dialogue was edited out, and we were left with Burton’s images and Danny Elfman’s score, the film would be remarkably improved. Sadly, the damage is already done.
I agree that Seth Grahame-Smith and John August missed the mark at translating the campy nature of the original Dark Shadows soap opera to the screen. This does not, however, make Depp and Burton responsible for the film’s most stringent failures. August's voice is uncomfortably present in rigid dialogue (especially in the sex scenes) and constant cheap references to his previous hit collaboration with Burton, Big Fish. The film’s structure is head-whirling and confused with strained plot lines that seem to originate from nowhere. They are not propelled by any of the character’s deeper desires or concrete goals. With the exception of Depp and Bonham-Carter, who achieve the serio-comic tone this revival demands, the actors and their characters’ voices fall flat. This is due in part to painfully bad casting choices such as Jackie Earle Haley (best known for brutal and sardonic characters like Guerrero from Human Target), being cast as the meek drunkard housekeeper. We can only hope that Grahame-Smith and Burton’s upcoming collaboration, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, will be a more enjoyable ride.
Mr. Asch fails to identify the real problems with Dark Shadows, as he is too focused on attacking Burton and Depp as a team. He makes unsubstantiated claims about Burton’s body of work, suggesting it has been all downhill for the Burton/Depp collaboration since Edward Scissorhands. This ignores Alice in Wonderland, a magnificent fantasy and box office success of almost $320 million along with other hits of theirs such as Sweeney Todd or Ed Wood. Perhaps Asch should re-examine Burton’s accomplishments and their reviews before saying something as silly as, “Tim Burton and Johnny Depp Must Be Stopped”. Find the problem before you blatantly accuse people of something Mr. Asch.
I love Burton.....The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy....his partner Helena Bonham Carter and Depp. One must possess giant testicles to tackle this complex material. Their collaberation yields pure escapism.....just love it.
Can you tell me why there are only white and Chinese people in his films? He does know that America is a mixed country right?
He always brought something special to every role. One of my favorites was his outstanding portrayal of evil in Billy Budd.
Good article, but a fact checker is needed. That's Juliette Greco singing in the Paris club, not Josephine Baker.
Mrs. Leslie is excellent but very sad. But it's only a move and Robert Ryan is in it.
Funny Games was referenced explicitly in the first 5 minutes, yeah, what with the abrupt title card, and characters referring to "things not going wrong since 1998"? (They'd have to be using the U.S. release date, but still...)
"Creepy socio-path" is a kind description of Pinochet, DINA and supporters of the 1973 coup.
Good review. Sounds like I'll wait for the DVD to catch it...
Oh saw this today and absolutely hated it! So dry and forced. It made me constantly think of a recent interview I read with Gregg Araki where he said the worst reason to make a film is just because you want to make a film. You can tell the filmmaker just wanted to make a movie and pieced some existing literature together to having something to put before the camera.
