wild how patti smith invented capitalism
moralising ahistorical shite that gives contemporary 'thinking man' leftism its undialectical and cynical character
first half an hour is good
characterisation of The French Wife as being captivated by yer man is a low point as is the ending's stupid apologia for the rambling man archetype, the wilderness as a place outside language for a man to discover himself rather than taken, more lies amerika tells itself about itself, laughs
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
a bit too given to segmenting its characterisation on the basis of gender; it is men who are angry, political, intellectual and self-destructive. women want babies and marriage, they cry, it's unfortunate
ending is a copout rather than a #tasteful elision. you'll show a suicide bombing in turkey but not an amerikan one
