What ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Borrows From Terry Gilliam’s ‘Brazil’

(Welcome to The Movies That Made Star Wars, a series where we explore the films and television properties that inspired or help us better understand George Lucas’ iconic universe. In this edition: Brazil. ) The 1985 release of Terry Gilliam’s Brazil was nothing short of a miracle. The executives at Universal were so disappointed with Gilliam’s grim vision of the future that they wanted to recut it and give it a happy ending, but Gilliam refused to be beaten down by the system. He fought and...

Drones deliberately taunting Gatwick Airport, shutting it down for nearly 24 hours so far

Police are on the hunt for the owners of disruptive drones that have shut down London's Gatwick Airport for nearly 20 hours, preventing flights from taking off and landing. And these aren't your usual off-the-shelf drones, either. Police describe them as "industrial specification" drones, meaning they are "something bigger or more complex," according to CNN. This is Gatwick's busiest time, with over 100,000 passengers stranded until the drone operators are located. But locating them hasn't be...

Odessa is Ukraine's culinary capital

Odessa is a city that absorbs. It’s defined by diverse influences, by triumph and tragedy, and, because of its location on the Black Sea, by fantastic seafood. Odessans proudly wave the independent Ukrainian flag nowadays, but the Soviets, Germans, and Ottoman Empire have all occupied the city in its less than 250-year history. As such, Ukraine’s third largest city is an amalgamation of cultures and home to one of the most vibrant culinary scenes in Europe. Odessa is the type of place you wa...

Leskov’s Laughter and Grief.

Leskov’s 1871 Смех и горе (Laughter and Grief, not translated into English as far as I know) is a short novel, around 200 pages, and it shouldn’t have taken me a month to read it, but I had very mixed feelings about it and kept putting it aside. It didn’t repel me enough to reject it entirely, like the later parts of Nekuda (see this post), but it didn’t grip me either. Gabriella Safran describes it as “a series of tales united only by the narrator’s thesis that Russian life is full of unpleasa...
