All blessings upon you Mr. Brennan. TSA is not keeping us safer with their invasive pat downs and all one must go through now to board a plane. It is demeaning and it is not making us safer. That people are so enthusiastically compliant to this stupidity is perplexing to me. And it is happening just the same in Europe as here.
No, I haven't seen this movie, but I plan to. Those crazies at the NY Times love it, call it a masterpiece, but jeez, what do they know? As to classic themes of the genre called "tragedy", yeah, like man, those Greek plays, those operas, those centuries of literature, like those themes are so repetitive..... , excuse the sarcasm, I am flummoxed by the critic. I say, ignore this person, who indicates neither cinematographic nor literary sense of history, nor understanding of the unfathomable power of archetype, yet has a job critiquing film. But I respect Mr. Caraeff's right to an opinion. Yet the human drama is repetitive, art is expected to inform, deepen, and enrich through a more metaphorical sense of what the French call bulot dodos (work, sleep), reference to the grind of the Rat Race. The Rat Race which one might flee briefly in darkened halls of flickering image called movie houses. Sex is repetitive, eating is repetitive, but can be so mystical, so fun, so alive. Mr. Caraeff, why is this? I never get tired of stories about redemption, they uplift my spirit.
