“Jayzuz Criest Another Gawddamm Jonestown!”

in a movie set 10 years before that happened and recreated scenes from the Charlie Manson Family documentary, which meant in the movie, under 20 deaths compared to over a 1,000. but – remember – the movie was set 10 years before Jonestown and was made in the 1990, a spin off of sorts from the Freddy Kreuger Nightmare on Elm Street Franchise.

Not my Planet MonkeyBoy

big book o citizen kane battle over ctizen kane

Citizen Kane is my fave movie, it’s not just a film snob thing….citizen-kane-rosebud-895f1 Citizen00

Because when you know what rosebud is and it ain’t the sled. in the movie, it’s that Mother Love, and in the subtext, it was Hearst’ nickname for her clitoris. She also loved puzzles.

Broken BLossomsMuch Ado about Racism

DW Griffith in the silent era: The Chinese Buddhist loves the Brit, but he had to be played by a white man otherwise too scandalous to show what is being told…..barbarians  in the audience … smiling makes the face ache… meanwhile, Denzel Washington Shakespeare to make the point about the Much Ado not being made. sadly, these types of movies didn’t continue.

Filmmakers and their context, and their commentary…


Movies are also a way to comment on the present by putting commentary into the past.

carol-poster trumbo-poster-bryan-cranston-2

sexuality and freedom of expression and speech. made now, but set back then, when all the queer stories ended in death of one, usually to make the survivor return to the safety of heterosexuality.. how brave to make a statement and then bury it. gay for pay and straight movie watchers, vs made by with and for queers.



very few movies tackled the issues in the context of now (well, when they where made, that now that was the then) true enough and true stories rendered unto fiction. gay for pay.


not.just.saying, eh?


comedy from take my wife and airplane food, to observational with swearing, to confessional therapy… it’s time to return to funny, subversive and inclusive commentary

referential rather than reverential or even stuck in that zero sum circle jerk dynamic of a picking on pecking order.

something that just proves how boring hetero-normative is when even knowing there’s other options is apparently, all one needs to know.

the world is war weary and we need to work and play well together, but it’s already probably too late.
