Quand la critique des « suburbs » envahit les séries TV U.S.| Métropolitiques | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

De Desperate Housewives à Weeds, les banlieues apparaissent, parfois de façon caricaturale, comme les lieux de la monotonie et du conformisme social, mais aussi comme le terrain de comportements immoraux ou déviants."

Ce n'est pas un hasard si les "instants suspendus" qui émaillent l'œuvre du peintre américain cinéphile Edward Hopper (1882-1967) inspirèrent Wenders, Jarmusch, Lynch ou même Hitchcock et Antonioni. A l'occasion de la grande rétrospective qui lui est consacrée au Grand Palais (Paris), retour sur les liens ténus entre Hopper et le cinéma."

"Facebook, YouTube and even texting will be the salvation of many of the world's endangered languages, scientists believe."

----------
