"What passes for hip cynical transcendence of sentiment is really some kind of fear of being really human, since to be really human is probably to be unavoidably sentimental and naïve and goo-prone and generally pathetic."

— David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

Quote
"We’re not yet halfway through The Honourable Woman but it’s clear writer/director/producer Hugo Blick has assembled his political thriller with rare confidence and control. Dense, deliberate, harrowing and opaque, it already feels comparable to the most-admired US dramas of recent years while retaining its own unique UK flavour, possibly due to Blick’s instinct to surprise and subvert."

— Oh, there’s a new show by the guy who made The Shadow Line??  Damn, I liked The Shadow Line so, so much— and this one’s a Middle Eastern spy thriller starring Maggie Gyllenhaal…? Oh, and Stephen Rea again (aka motherfucking Gatehouse).  Huh!  Neat— plus, good timing since Kiefer Sutherland is done murdering people on my Monday nights.  Trailer.

Nightcrawler trailer.  LA-based crime movie “set in the underground world of crime reporting in Los Angeles”.

I like when movies are advertised as being “set in the underground world” of just about anything— that’s a pretty neat way to advertise a movie.  This movie is set in the underground world of peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.   Ooooh.  It’s peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, but maybe the people making them are wearing interest kinds of eyeshadow or have fancy leather gloves, or I don’t even know, kiss in weird German ways I don’t even know about…?  Jealous.  I feel like I never got to be in an underground world of anything.  I’m into the underground world of napping on the weekend…?  Not very convincing.On the other hand, what do you even wear to a sexually sinister Underground World of Doing Stuff?  I don’t even know what section of the Gap you have to look through, to find the right kind of chinos for that sort of thing…

"In the Eighties, when I was in college in 1988. That was almost the end of the military dictatorship. I was a student protester. I was part of a lot of demonstrations against the government and I would have to run away from riot police. In one particular instance, I ran away and opened a random door and ended up in a very classy, high-end hotel. I found myself in this lobby where there was piano music and just two seconds ago they were shooting tear gas at me. There I was listening to Mozart and guests were dressed up in nice clothes drinking coffee as if nothing was going on. I was just in a daze, thinking ‘where am I’? That feeling is definitely a part of the sushi bar scene."

— Bong Joon-ho (x)

"Americans, unhappily, have the most remarkable ability to alchemize all bitter truths into an innocuous but piquant confection and to transform their moral contradictions, or public discussion of such contradictions, into a proud decoration, such as are given for heroism on the field of battle."

— James Baldwin, “Many Thousands Gone”

Been watching 30 Rock for first(ish, I watched it really infrequently when it was on) time, also out of order. Really connected with this bit.
