A Page of Madness: The Lost, Avant Garde Masterpiece from Early Japanese Cinema (1926)

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. So we should consider ourselves fortunate that Teinosuke Kinugasa’s Kuretta Ippei -- a 1926 film known in the States as A Page of Madness -- has somehow managed to survive the vagaries of fate. Kinuga...

Flake to CBS?

Well, well... All of you who suggested that ex- AZ Senator Jeff Flake would end up a part of the MSM, pat yourselves on the back. How unseemly; Flake didn't even wait a week. Your guesses that his anti-Trump rhetoric might be tied to future employ with the MSM is likely right on. If he had turned a-T some time after leaving office, one might draw a different conclusion. As it is, it's hard to conclude anything else. My prediction is that Flake'll be as irrelevant as Anna Navarro. Better have ...

The Books That Samuel Beckett Read and Really Liked (1941-1956)

Samuel Beckett, Pic, 1" by Roger Pic. Via Wikimedia Commons Clad in a black turtleneck and with a shock of white hair, Samuel Beckett was a gaunt, gloomy high priest of modernism. After the 1955 premiere of Samuel Beckett’s play Waiting for Godot (watch him stage a performance here), Kenneth Tynan quipped, ''It has no plot, no climax, no denouement; no beginning, no middle and no end.'' From there, Beckett’s work only got more austere, bleak and despairing. His 1969 play Breath, for instance,...

Hunter S. Thompson, Existentialist Life Coach, Presents Tips for Finding Meaning in Life

Image by Steve Anderson, via Wikimedia Commons At first blush, Hunter S. Thompson might be the last person you would want to ask for advice. After all, his daily routine involved copious amounts of cocaine, LSD and Chivas Regal. He once raked a neighbor’s house with gunfire. And he once almost accidentally blew up Johnny Depp. Yet beneath his gonzo persona lay a man who thought deeply and often about the meaning of it all. He was someone who spent a lifetime staring into the abyss. So in 1958, ...
