oooh, I forgot Spike Jonze...


BJM: 1/2
Adaptation: **
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

All of them are four star material for me. But I give a fifth star when I think the movie is some kind of masterpiece, as I believe Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill Vol. 1 are---

I guess I'll do Spike as well, mainly just to make Gold Trumpet mad:

Being John Malkovich- ****
Adaptation- ***1/2

I just have to see at least a third by him to really be able to predict his greatness, it's just a little too early to tell, but he does have a wonderful start.  One can't help but wonder how good Spike's movies would be if Kaufman didn't write for him.  Obviously Jonze is a creative guy, he showed that in his videos, but I would like to see if he can handle a film of his own creation.

Maybe, but if you thought Storytelling was half decent, then I can't take your word.
