Roger Ebert: How To Read a Movie

Understanding the visual language of movies.

I already knew about the painter's "Golden Mean," or the larger concept of the "golden ratio." For a complete explanation, see Wiki, and also look up the "Rule of Thirds." To reduce the concept to a crude rule of thumb in the composition of a shot in a movie: A person located somewhat to the right of center will seem ideally placed. A person to the right of that position will seem more positive; to the left, more negative. A centered person will seem objectified, like a mug shot. I call that position somewhat to the right of center the "strong axis."

Now what do I mean by "positive" or "negative?" I mean that these are tendencies within the composition. They are not absolutes. But in general terms, in a two-shot, the person on the right will "seem" dominant over the person on the left. Does this apply even to films from cultures that read right to left or top to bottom? From my treks through many Asian films, yes, it seems to.

There are many other rules of thumb. I will outline some broadly, and if you're interested you can examine them in films, or read about them in books by such as Giannetti or David Bordwell (both often used as textbooks). They will not use the same terms, and by no means do I imply they would agree with me; I am summarizing my own beliefs, based on hundreds of shot-by-shot experiences over the years. But they are scrutinizing films with the same intense curiosity, and that's the real point. Consider Bordwell, whose great book on Ozu uses many panels of individual frames to illuminate a director who virtually never moved his camera, and yet whose compositions are alive with visual strategy.

If Rotherham is any evidence toward that, then YES.

It turns out that not only did the Rotherham officials turn a blind eye to underage sex trafficking because the traffickers were of [REDACTED] race and [REDACTED] religion, but not only did the police actively aid and abet the sex trafficking, but even participated in the underage sex!

24 That SX-70 was one of the most elegant of all industrial designs of it's time.

If you've ever had the pleasure of using one, it was evident that it was a quality machine. The early, ultrasonic-ranged "autofocus" was so very cutting edge, and for many years, was still the king of low light focusing accuracy.

They're appreciating on the market. Don't know what effect the end of their film will have on that aspect now, though.

Down the drain. A lot. So then her hairdresser talked her into extensions. You could tell. You could see the ridges on the side and back of her head. But overall it looked great. Except that it's hard on the hair, and it pulls the hair, and even more falls out. So then she said "fuck it", got the extensions out, cut it short and is starting over

111 Megyn was pregnant any had all those good hormones and good vitamins and had great long hair. Then she had the baby, and when you have the baby a lot of that great hair goes away. Falls out. Down the drain. A lot. So then her hairdresser talked her into extensions. You could tell. You could see the ridges on the side and back of her head. But overall it looked great. Except that it's hard on the hair, and it pulls the hair, and even more falls out. So then she said "fuck it", got the extensions out, cut it short and is starting over

Posted by: Vertov at March 01, 2016 11:31 PM


It's one of those movies where nobody really stands out, coz the whole cast were so fucking good in FOTP. It's an incredibly under rated movie. It just kicks arse in every department and though acknowledged generally, it doesn't get the major classic love it deserves to this day. Kennedy was great in it.

Posted by: otho at March 01, 2016 11:39 PM (EWg9n)

187 George Kennedy was great in everything, he was one of those actors I always looked for and remembered. For a character actor he was so distinct and interesting you remembered him personally.

I agree completely. And there's even more there. I can't think of another movie where Jimmy Stewart gets humiliated this way. You take an actor everyone loves and he gets crushed. You have true heroes and cowards. And like you say, it's just a little ensemble piece.

I have to say, by comparison, for the hell of it I watched World War Z this weekend. Big Brad Pitt blockbuster, great effects, great CGI, and yet - it's just a zombie movie. Pure b-movie crap if made in 1965. I couldn't help wonder - didn't Brad Pitt, at the time, have a more interesting script lying around? You know, handful of guys stranded in the Sahara? Another 12 Angry Men? Something about human emotions and actions and consequences - and not zombie crap?

I wonder if today's movie stars know the first thing about stories.

"Does anyone know who won CO?"


------------------

There will be no Republican results for Colorado. While tonight was also Republican caucus night, the State party has absolutely banned any presidential preference polls. The concept is that the State Party will name the delegation to the national convention without any interference from the peasants. [They will kinda-sorta be voted on, as a bloc without any opposition, at the state convention.] Officially, the delegation will be uncommitted. In fact, they will vote as they are told to by the RNC. It is the Supreme Soviet model of representative democracy.

The caucuses did choose precinct chairpersons [who are members of the county central committee] and elect delegates to the county assembly. The county assemble will choose from those running for county offices which go on the primary election ballot [by getting 30% of the votes from the assembly], and from the delegates present elect delegates to the state legislative district assemblies, the congressional district assemblies, and the state convention. Aside from party housekeeping business, each will select the candidates for the primary ballots for their assemblies.

We have a US Senate seat up [Michael Bennet (D)] this year. Last I heard, there were 22 people wanting to run. In theory, the state convention will winnow them down to 3 on the primary ballot. I say in theory, because in 2014 there were 8 people running for Mark Udall (D)'s seat, but the Party called them all in before the county assemblies, told them if they did not drop out that they would never get any support from the party again for anything, and named Cory Gardner, who had not indicated any intention of running, as the only candidate. Once again, the Supreme Soviet model favored by State Chairman Steve House. I expect something similar again.

Fox used to be a truly great network, I still remember the first time I watched Humes Special Report back in the 90s and was amazed at what they were covering and discussing, you just couldn't find that kind of stuff anywhere else on TV at the time, but once they started dominating ratings in Bushs first time they became more and more generic, it's still better than anything else, but nowhere near as good as it once was.

Back in the day, a friend's squeeze was dumping on the threadbare plots of Miami Vice.

Unless Krauts are uniformly retards, surely they weren't taken in by the women posing as men. Suspension of disbelief, my brothers! It's about the music, not the plot!

Also the Rubio spokespeople came loaded for bear with their talking points and I'm afraid the others' didn't. (I didn't know I'd be allowed to make a speech so @#$#%, lesson learnt.)

But, since our precinct's delegates were all self-selected anyway, I have 18 days to write an award-winning debate-speech, before the county circus I mean, convention.

Posted by: Mike Hammer
------------
Mantz died on July 8, 1965 while working on the movie The Flight of the Phoenix, produced and directed by Robert Aldrich. Flying a very unusual aircraft, the Tallmantz Phoenix P-1 built especially for the film, Mantz struck a small hillock while skimming over a desert site in Arizona for a second take. As Mantz attempted to recover by opening the throttle to its maximum, the over-stressed aircraft broke in two and nosed over into the ground, killing Mantz instantly. Bobby Rose, a stuntman standing behind Mantz in the cockpit and representing a character played by Hardy Krüger, was seriously injured.

No, I think it's an Indian word meaning "Source of Raving Leftist Lunatics That Infest Previously Sensible States," of which California is an example.


California WAS fine; it was assholes from NY, NJ, MA, IL and MN that fucked it up. Native Californians are/were almost to a man pretty conservative, Jerry Brown being a major exception. He only got elected in 1975 because of name recognition - his father had been a successful (non-crazy) Democrat, only the second in California's history, IIRC - coupled with the influx of liberal shitheads from the Northeast and upper Midwest.

You are really referring to the "thought leaders" (heh) who had assumed that Trump would blow it at some point, but none of them really understood what was going on. They didn't even take his run seriously until rather recently.

He's fed upon the hatred for politicians with a Stand-Up Routine and took it.

Posted by: Slapweasel, (Cold1) (T) at March 02, 2016 12:14 AM (OQ9R7)


Incorrect. That is not what Trump's run has been about. Not even close. His campaign was built on a foundation of restoring sovereignty, putting illegals back where they truly belong and taking the view that America is supposed to be winning in world competitions, not to serve as a doormat that spits out money and jobs.

That does not diminish the movie one bit. And it isn't the only movie that deviates from the book, either.

Now, of course, every time I see the actor who played Duncan, I know he will come to a bad end. He seems to have been typecast a bit, and it has been rather humorous keeping track of him. He will always be just "Duncan."

417 In case you missed it: Hillary called out Johnson Controls tonight in her speech for taking bailout money and then moving off shore. It caught my ear because I've never heard of Johnson Controls before. So while she rambled on I googled them.

They already have there own response up so they must have known this was coming. They say: "In 2009, Johnson Controls was awarded a federal matching grant for joint efforts with the U.S. Department of Energy to fund development of advanced energy storage solutions for hybrid and electric vehicles." and that now they want to merge with Tyco.

That makes what Hillary said a big fat lie. A research grant is not a bailout. Presumably they did actually provide value for the money they received but even if they didn't it's still not a bailout.

So my question is: what did Johnson Controls do to piss Hillary off and/or who is Hillary trying to shill for that wants a piece of Johnson Controls ass.

Others have taken this tack but not with some little company in Wisconsin. What the hell was that even about?

Trump's plan for recapturing overseas corporate money only extends to a 'tax holiday' formula, which has been tried before (2004), and didn't work.

So far as tariffs go, I'm not necessarily opposed, but it means higher cost of goods for Americans, and implies that we can not compete in a world market. Not exactly the American way, I would say.

My great concern is corporate tax rates, and the impact they have on driving companies overseas, which is what leads Mr. Trump to tout his tax holiday repatriation plan.

The problem is one of structural advantages. IE, that the third world has one, thanks to our labor and environmental laws. We're going to keep losing as long as we try to compete with them on an unlevel field, without doing something to relevel it. Tariffs do that, by taking away their edge. Free trade should be reserved for allied nations with similar levels of economic development - because they're not a threat to the existence of entire industries for reasons of having similar costs of doing business.

Actually, tariffs are very much the American way. Tariffs are not just for punitive purposes (though they serve that end, when appropriate) but for funding the feral government. Reductions in tariffs are offset by raises in feral income tax and vice versa. Back when there were no federal income taxes there were tariffs. The idea that we can do away with tariffs (and that tariffs are nothing but evil) only grew out of the federal government's creation and increased obsession with the income tax. We get lower-priced goods at the expense of higher personal taxes and the federal government feeling free to branch out into all manner of Constitutionally prohibited areas.

I'm definitely a fan of changing our corporate tax structure too, but I think tariffs should be part of the package while we're changing the tax structure. We might even be able to sell some Democrats on the idea that we're not really lowering taxes, just replacing one with another if we do both at the same time.

Posted by: Tim in GA at March 02, 2016 01:12 AM (YLidQ)


As you may know, Federal taxes on income are only legal because of the Sixteenth Amendment -- passed February 3rd, 1913. The proximity to the Federal Reserve Act of December 23, 1913 that established the Federal Reserve System is no coincidence. It should be noted that the previous US central bank was the 2nd Bank of the United States, which Andrew Jackson nuked in 1834 [though it limped to 1841 before keeling-over]. Before then, a great majority of the Federal government was, in fact, paid for through tariffs.

The magnitude of the Federal Leviathan had been markedly limited by our Founding Fathers in their original scheme, but shortly after 1913, it metastasized quickly. Wikipedia has nice articles on "bank war", "federal reserve system", and "andrew jackson" -- which has a link to his bank veto statement [available at http://avalon.law.yale.edu /19th_century/ajveto01.asp ], which contains the following paragraphs:


"It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the
acts of government to their selfish purposes. Distinctions in society
will always exist under every just government. Equality of talents, of
education, or of wealth can not be produced by human institutions. In
the full enjoyment of the gifts of Heaven and the fruits of superior
industry, economy, and virtue, every man is equally entitled to
protection by law; but when the laws undertake to add to these natural
and just advantages artificial distinctions, to grant titles,
gratuities, and exclusive privileges, to make the rich richer and the
potent more powerful, the humble members of society-the farmers,
mechanics, and laborers-who have neither the time nor the means of
securing like favors to themselves, have a right to complain of the
injustice of their Government. There are no necessary evils in
government. Its evils exist only in its abuses. If it would confine
itself to equal protection, and, as Heaven does its rains, shower its
favors alike on the high and the low, the rich and the poor, it would be
an unqualified blessing. In the act before me there seems to be a wide
and unnecessary departure from these just principles.


Nor is our Government to be maintained or our Union preserved by
invasions of the rights and powers of the several States. In thus
attempting to make our General Government strong we make it weak. Its
true strength consists in leaving individuals and States as much as
possible to themselves-in making itself felt, not in its power, but in
its beneficence; not in its control, but in its protection; not in
binding the States more closely to the center, but leaving each to move
unobstructed in its proper orbit.

Experience should teach us wisdom. Most of the difficulties our
Government now encounters and most of the dangers which impend over our
Union have sprung from an abandonment of the legitimate objects of
Government by our national legislation, and the adoption of such
principles as are embodied in this act. Many of our rich men have not
been content with equal protection and equal benefits, but have besought
us to make them richer by act of Congress. By attempting to gratify
their desires we have in the results of our legislation arrayed section
against section, interest against interest, and man against man, in a
fearful commotion which threatens to shake the foundations of our Union.
It is time to pause in our career to review our principles, and if
possible revive that devoted patriotism and spirit of compromise which
distinguished the sages of the Revolution and the fathers of our Union.
If we can not at once, in justice to interests vested under improvident
legislation, make our Government what it ought to be, we can at least
take a stand against all new grants of monopolies and exclusive
privileges, against any prostitution of our Government to the
advancement of the few at the expense of the many, and in favor of
compromise and gradual reform in our code of laws and system of
political economy."

Our group called bullshit on both the BBA and the harrumphs. We voted against the former and for the latter. The last one with full knowledge that it was cow pie, but that we still needed to send a message.

Well, sure. But it's also an indication that the government is happy with funding itself solely on the backs of Americans and letting foreign exporters benefit from that. It is giving away the strength of the American economy to the world ... all for a few crumbs. An economy that every company on Earth lives to sell into just throws itself open, on the backs of our own taxpayers, and usually without any reciprocal benefits or even opportunities. A borderless economy is no more sane or reasonable than a borderless nation.

Have what? When I say 'heard', I mean 'heard' from Mr. Trump himself. If you are inclined to impugn the source, I leave it you.



Trump's plan for recapturing overseas corporate money only extends
to a 'tax holiday' formula, which has been tried before (2004), and
didn't work.



So far as tariffs go, I'm not necessarily opposed, but it means
higher cost of goods for Americans, and implies that we can not compete
in a world market. Not exactly the American way, I would say.



My great concern is corporate tax rates, and the impact they have on
driving companies overseas, which is what leads Mr. Trump to tout his
tax holiday repatriation plan.





Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at March 02, 2016 01:23 AM (9mTYi)


Corporate tax rates are an abomination. They only exist for the government to get two bites at each apple. If you're a shareholder and your company makes money, it pays taxes to the government before it can pay you a dividend, which is also taxed to you. If it never pays you that dividend, the value of its shares goes up, which is also taxed to you whenever you sell them. Either way, the earnings are taxed twice.

Easiest way out -- abolish the corporate income tax and require individuals to pay taxes on their share of corporate earnings. Effectively make every US Corporation a sub-S corp.

As I said previously, "I am not necessarily opposed to tariffs". I reiterate the caveat, however, that they raise the cost of goods and everyone of those $ has to come out of American's pockets. One could make the argument that, just as corporations do not pay taxes (the consumers of their products do), the tariffs levied will be paid by consumers.

I reiterate, my concern is a corporate tax policy which moves the companies offshore, and the jobs along with them. I want a policy that makes us inviting.

Well, if Trump is in favor of a tax holiday, perhaps he would be open to permanent tax relief?

A bit of pedantry; we ARE inviting. Everyone wants to sell here. Even American companies that move offshore still produce to sell here. Our economy is still the biggest on Earth and the most vibrant.

It's not that we need to be "inviting". We need to be productive. And we both agree that all the bullshit regulations (and internal taxes) that are visited upon those operating on American soil chases business away. Our pathetic government has even made it a huge disadvantage to be anywhere near American soil for production of any sort. The civil courts have contributed greatly to this problem, too.

588 Ooooh, Cruz pulls ahead in...Alaska!

If he holds his current slim lead, that will mean he won three states tonight, not just two. Somehow, that seems more meaty and significant, even if Alaska is small delegate-wise.

Cruz also came this close to winning Arkansas too.

So, he's obviously now solidified his second-place challenger position, since Rubio only won a single state and finished third in almost all of the others.

But Rubio has already said he's not dropping out either.

And Trump was dominant but not dominant enough to declare the race over.

What this means is that the circular firing squad slugfest will continue unabated, and will likely finish off the Republican Party by summer.

The Democrats may naively dance in glee at what they had long predicted coming true, but they will be sorely vexed when they learn the hard way that although the party may implode and die, the voters who formerly identified with that party are all still alive and kicking and even more engaged than ever before. If anything, without the GOPe to keep the conservatives/constitutionalists/libertarians/small-government majority in line, those voters will be on a rampage to finally get the results they have long craved, and not have to settle for different shades of socialism.

The metaphorical streets will run red with metaphorical blood. Metaphorically, that is.

"It is maintained by some that the bank is a means of executing the
constitutional power 'to coin money and regulate the value thereof.'
Congress have established a mint to coin money and passed laws to
regulate the value thereof. The money so coined, with its value so
regulated, and such foreign coins as Congress may adopt are the only
currency known to the Constitution. But if they have other power to
regulate the currency, it was conferred to be exercised by themselves,
and not to be transferred to a corporation. If the bank be established
for that purpose, with a charter unalterable without its consent,
Congress have parted with their power for a term of years, during which
the Constitution is a dead letter. It is neither necessary nor proper to
transfer its legislative power to such a bank, and therefore
unconstitutional."

The underlying problem is that we distrust every word uttered by the MSM or government to the point where the default is to assume that everything is an outright lie. So, when they said, "Breitbart dead of natural causes", it had to be murder if he wasn't still alive.

On the flip side, I can't believe that Bill Whittle could explain things so many things so clearly if his head weren't right -- so, when he came out to express his sorrow and understanding of Breitbart's death, that pretty much put it to bed.

I hope his kids know that the blood of our Golden Lion flows through their veins. They may be called to greatness.

Besides the political stuff, the sections on the early days of the interwebz are fascinating. The details on the origin of Matt Drudge's news empire, the interactions with the young and completely unknown Andy Levy and Greg Gutfeld, the early days of PuffHo...great, great stuff.

Love the part where Breitbart sits down with a rotisserie chicken and a six-pack to start dialing up his modem. By the time he got an online connection, he was surrounded by chicken bones and empty cans. That was me too, in those days.

From what I get about the process, AoSDD short-circuits the official tally at the capitol by directly reading each polling location via crowdsurfing. Since the "official" vote counters in the administration aren't involved, the results are both quicker and less susceptible to manipulation.

That is exactly the wrong reason that speculation should be set aside, but rather that such friendship should be weighed and a conclusion should be reached. Ace and Bill Whittle both argued persuasively that Andrew Breitbart died of natural causes, despite having run up against the Democrat cabal of suspected murderers and having died, young, in a suspicious manner.

As we've seen on Twitter, censorship is the default nature of the Left. Making informed judgements based on facts is more of a righty thing.

No, I completely understand. First, the shock of his death; and second, the realization that it was entirely believable that lawless Progressives might have assassinated him while operating the levers of government. That believable friends of Breitbart testified as to his natural death did not erase the shocking realization that our government had become so lawless that such suspicion was credible.

I don't know who you're trying to influence here -- but it is a fact that those who knew Andrew Breitbart came forward to put his death in context; while everyone who wasn't fortunate enough to know him personally got a chill up their spine when they couldn't rule out foul-play given the current administration's tradition of lawlessness.

It's censorship to gloss over the real suspicion that he was such a phenomenon that his death might have been assassination -- as per @630. And that the general trend of governmental lawlessness might also point that way.

That said, it is fitting that we remember on this day how his friends in life chose truth in dispelling such suspicions and did not seek to wave the bloody shirt.

Hillary's Dirty Little ObamaCare Secret

The White House was telling her the opposite of what Obama said.


a lot is redacted

but, they basically said they had no clue on costs, and they lied what it would do

In an Oct. 19, 2009 email, Mrs. Clinton asked Ms. Tanden, "Are you worried about the lack of cost controls in the current bills?" Ms. Tanden replied that "the dirty little secret is that we don't have a lot of good evidence on what works--in a way that Congress has any appetite to do. I mean, cost controls, as we all know, is [ sic ] attacked as rationing. So everyone likes to discuss this, including the Administration, but then on the other hand, says they won't touch the benefits. Now there is a lot of fat in the system, but some of that excess is just too much care. Yet no one really wants care to be restricted."

Ms. Tanden was telling Mrs. Clinton that the truth was closer to the reverse. She wrote that "the other problem" is that the de minimis cost-control problems that ObamaCare did include "need some time to incubate because we don't have all the evidence we need. . . . We may have oversold what these bills will ( or even can ) do."

Goldman Sachs Puts Its Only Trump Donor On Administrative Leave

The only Goldman Sachs employee known to have donated to Donald Trump's presidential campaign has been placed on paid leave after he and the company were mentioned in a New York Times article.


dailycaller

He gave $525, but,

As The Times notes, Goldman Sachs employees have contributed more than $199,000 to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's presidential campaign. They've contributed more than $94,000 to Hillary Clinton. Trump's campaign is largely self-funding, and he has not solicited donations from Wall Street firms or any other companies.

719 Do you think Andrew would hyperventilate over Trump as the Republican Candidate threaten to Boycott, write-in, or not vote, thus giving the victory to progressives/democrats? Or would he get on the Train?

Do you think Andrew would be calling out those elitists who insult supporters of Trump as idiots backwoods-morons who are supporting the "wrong" guy and just aren't smart enough to know a "real" conservative?

Do you think Andrew would be guffawing and bitch-slapping those who call Trump a "con-man" when we have been the Rubes conned every day supporting the "conservative" Republican Party that has stabbed us in the back, telling us to shut-up, sit down take it - for the past 7 years?

Do you think Andrew would be holding those who spouted the "Burn it Down" mantra, to their own words?

Exactly.

Absolutely. Manhunter was actually better than Silence of the Lambs, and still remains the most faithful retelling of the book. Heat is another Mann classic.
