Bowling for Columbine: It’s Online and 10 Years Later the School Massacres Continue. Have You Had Enough?!

Bowling for Columbine: It’s Online and 10 Years Later the School Massacres Continue. Have You Had Enough?! | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it
In April 1999, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold murdered 12 students and one teacher in Columbine, Colorado, while injuring 21 others.
Xaos's insight:

Michael Moore documented the tragedy in his 2002 film, Bowling for Columbine, which sits on YouTube, available for everyone to see. It’s heartbreaking to think that a decade later, students are no safer at their schools. If anything, gun control has slackened during the intervening years (thanks partly to the Supreme Court) and mass murders have become more commonplace, if not a monthly occurrence. 12 were killed and 52 injured in Aurora, CO in July. 10 killed in a Sikh temple shooting in Wisconsin this August. Five gunned down at Accent Signage Systems in Minnesota in October. Two shot dead at a mall in Portland, Oregon earlier this week. And now 20 youngsters and seven adults killed at an elementary school today in Connecticut.

A Page of Madness: The Lost, Avant Garde Masterpiece from the Early Days of Japanese Cinema (1926) | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it
It’s a sad fact that the vast majority of silent movies in Japan have been lost thanks to human carelessness, earthquakes and the grim efficiency of the United States Air Force. The first films of hugely important figures like Kenji Mizoguchi, Yasujiro Ozu, and Hiroshi Shimizu have simply vanished.

Jim Jarmusch’s Petrified Hipness - The New Yorker | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it
Following Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” Jim Jarmusch’s new film, “Only Lovers Left Alive,” is the second-most-intensely curated movie of the season, starting with its first images, in which a galaxy of stars morphs into the spinning, gleaming groove of a vintage rock 45 on a turntable. The rest of the movie only deepens the mystical sense of the cosmos condensed into the well-chosen work of art—and the vintage fetish object that embodies it. The first dramatic scene is a guitar lov

One thing that bothers Terry Gilliam about Hollywood is the pressure it exerts on filmmakers to resolve their stories into happy endings. In this interesting clip, Gilliam makes his point by comparing the work of Steven Spielberg--perhaps the quintessential Hollywood director--with that of Stanley Kubrick, who, like Gilliam, steered clear of Hollywood and lived a life of exile in England.
