mrparks: MattytheMouse: ... it's in its most time-tested, extreme incarnate, and while it's minorly cool that they finally recognized the KKK as terrorists, it sucks that they only did it when the KKK today mostly comprises of boomers on their death bed, and struck a morally equivalency with antifa too, all the while ignoring this generation's hate groups.

I think that is part of the myth that the south is the only racist part of the country.

Except this is the Birth...Nation klan's second cousin, and that film screened nation-wide.


I have access to that movie on my Roku and can't bring myself to watch it. I keep telling myself I should but so far I just can't. Hell, I haven't seen GWTW all the way through. Only bits and pieces.

My all time fave silent is Metropolis with the Morodor soundtrack. 20k Leagues Under The Sea from 1917 has an interesting back story for Nemo. A Persian prince bent on revenge for his daughter. It was weird.

From what I understand that was very close to Verne's original idea, except he dialled it back as too dark

Ah. Thanks for the info. Apparently not so dark that it didn't get out to the filmmakers. I wonder if the early versions had it. For 1917 it is watchable.

"Unacceptable" is not strong enough language. How about "criminal" or "treasonous to our ideals"?

you want the re-translated version anyway, apparently there were a lot of mistakes in the first English translation

Marcus Aurelius: You have to keep up pretenses if only for the neighbors.


That's why Moscow Mitch is upset. Trump said the quiet parts outloud.  It makes it harder for the rest for he GOP to just quietly support white supremacists.

I just bought the Moroder Metropolis the other day.  It sure is one hell of a trip.  Some of it works and some of it doesn't, but it's a historically-significant cinematic curiosity either way.  I did like how they dropped the intertitles in favor of subtitles, though--it works for for practically any silent film that isn't The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

TuckFrump: You can't play the game both ways, Turtle. For months you have been blaming Democrats for 'letting America literally burn', when you say nothing about the KKK/Skinheads/Proud Boys


I take offense at the skinhead comment. Call them Nazis, white supremacists, proud boys, whatever. I'm very white and I work in hot environments. I buzz my head because it keeps me literally cooler. In addition, guys that are going bald do the same thing. Skin heads aren't really a faction any more. They usually look like meal team six or this:

Conservative haircuts and polo shirts. Kinda what the security people used to look like at Best Buy.

It's going to be like the opening scene in Juno. Downing shirtloads of liquids to ensure enough piss.

Ginnungagap42: fragMasterFlash: McConnell successfully packed the federal judiciary and soon the SCOTUS. He will eventually go to his grave the king of the good old boys no matter what he says publicly with fingers crossed behind his back.

I'm hoping he lives just long enough to watch us dismantle his work.

"lives"? Me thinks you embellish upon his current state of affairs.
