U B U W E B - Film & Video: Guy Debord - The Society of the Spectacle

Xaos's insight:

"La Société du Spectacle (Society of the Spectacle) is a black and white 1973 film by the Situationist Guy Debord based on his 1967 book of the same title. It was Debord's first feature-length film. It uses found footage and detournement in a radical criticism of mass marketing and its role in the alienation of modern society"

Terry Gilliam Explains The Difference Between Kubrick (Great Filmmaker) and Spielberg (Less So)

Terry Gilliam Explains The Difference Between Kubrick (Great Filmmaker) and Spielberg (Less So) | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it
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.

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, May 20, 4:41 AM

"The film is a battle cry against those who seek to snuff art out of the world, a call for us to not slide further back into our natural barbaric state. It tells us that whatever the threat, culture is only our only weapon against an endless deluge of muck and filth and shit. And it reminds us that, though all of it, great art must survive."
