Review: Maps to the Stars
A well-acted but excessively bleak satire of the Hollywood echo chamber.mpaa rating:R (For strong disturbing violence and sexual content, graphic nudity, language and some drug material.)Genre:DramaDirected By: David CronenbergRun Time: 1 hour 51 minutes Cast: Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Evan BirdTheatre Release:February 27, 2015 by Focus WorldOne of David Cronenberg’s trademarks as a filmmaker is his exploration of the body, particularly the horrors of its fragility. Through films like Videodrome (1983), The Fly (1986) and Existenz (1999), he helped pioneer the “body horror” genre. He adopted bogeyman tropes to stories where the scares come not from external monsters or villains, but from within—from the embodied self’s toxic neurosis.His movies have a cold, nihilistic view of humanity in the modern age. Humans are often indistinguishable from animals (bursts of animalistic, emotionless violence are regular Cronenbergian motifs) or simply machines, soulless cogs in a meaningless web of money, sex, drugs, and power.Maps to the Stars, a harsh and exaggerated look at the bleak goings-on of celebrities in Los Angeles, is no exception. With its body-image obsession, Botox body-alteration tendencies, and animalistic views of sex and survival, Hollywood is in many ways the perfect backdrop for Cronenberg’s “body horror” fascination.Almost too perfect.Maps zeroes in on all the worst things about Hollywood (especially actors) and cynically pushes them to the limits of grotesquery, but does it have anything insightful to offer? Unlike other “inside Hollyweird” films by auteur directors, Maps is neither beautiful (like David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive), nor smart (like Spike Jonze’s Adaptation), nor funny (like Christopher Guest’s For Your Consideration). It’s just gross.Maps follows a series of interlocking, incestuous (both figuratively and literally) storylines involving a cadre of highly unlikable Hollywood people: an aging actress (Julianne Moore, exceptional as always), a schizophrenic ...Continue reading...
Review: The Drop Box
It doesn't prove that these kids are worthwhile; it just shows that they are, and that's what's beautiful.mpaa rating:Not RatedGenre:DocumentaryDirected By: Brian IvieRun Time: 1 hour 19 minutes Cast: N/ATheatre Release:March 03, 2015 by Focus on the Family / Kindred ImageBrian Ivie’s documentary The Drop Box is an emotional balancing act: on one side is the heartbreaking fact that millions of children are abandoned at birth around the world every year. On the other side is the triumphant story of The Drop Box’s Pastor Lee Jong-rak, pastor of Jusarang (God’s Love) Community Church in Seoul, South Korea.Pastor Lee’s family and a handful of volunteers work to provide a home for over a dozen mildly to severely disabled children (including Pastor Lee’s son), and since December 2009, they have saved the lives of hundreds of abandoned newborns through their “baby box.”The concept and apparatus are simple: mothers who are unable to care for their children, as often for social reasons as economic ones in Seoul, can leave their babies in the box for Pastor Lee to care for. The box itself is like a cupboard: the baby is placed inside a padded, heated compartment, and when the door shuts a bell rings to alert the house.Pastor Lee stays up most nights to listen for the bell, and the first thing he does after carefully lifting a baby from the box is kneel to pray. He’ll then get the baby to a hospital and pass him or her on to an orphanage or adoption agency.The process is remarkably seamless. The mothers remain anonymous, the child is immediately given care, and the box is open to any who need it. But the work has complications. Many of the children are disabled, and the lack of records makes hospital visits challenging. Pastor Lee’s own health has suffered from his tireless work ethic. And there are all the children who live with the Lees permanently, most of whom need constant care. From the film’s perspective, though, none ...Continue reading...
Why Benjamin Netanyahu Showed Churchillian Moral Courage Today
When Winston Churchill famously addressed the United States Congress in the 1940s, he said he found in America “An Olympian fortitude which, far from being based upon complacency, is only the mask of an inflexible purpose and the proof of a sure, well-grounded confidence in the final outcome.”In today's speech in the U.S. House of Representatives, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu evoked that same fortitude and confidence that Churchill evoked all those years ago, not in the face of an attack on Pearl Harbor, of course, but rather in the grave threat posed by a potentially nuclear-tipped Iran.The post Why Benjamin Netanyahu Showed Churchillian Moral Courage Today appeared first on Jim Daly.
