  • Contempt



    Godard’s Contempt is an acerbic portrayal of domestic dysfunction and the torment of reimagining art. 
    60 years on “Contempt” by the politically and artistically radical auteur Jean Luc Godard is an alluring exercise in cinematic expression. Pulled from the embodiment of Greek Literature, The Odyssey, his tragic couple navigates the dissolution of their marriage amidst Godard’s critique of Western culture and its ceaseless arrogance. The screenplay unfolds in a meta-dramatic way, which once you tune into its languid frequency,…

    The Wicker Man


    Marking its 50th year around the Sun, “The Wicker Man” remains an iconic cult classic. And after all these years, for a variety of reasons, it is a film that stands firmly on its own.

    Blending historical accounts, archival footage, and re-enactments, Raoul Peck crafts a masterful docuseries. Peck was born in Haiti, a revolutionary country that has tragically become a victim of US hegemonic rule

    Having made Lumumba, The Young Karl Marx, and I am not your Negro, Peck is well versed in leftist history and figures. Exterminate All the Brutes seamlessly jumps through the colonial past with both an academic and personal approach.

    When I wasn’t being moved by the remarkable production, I kept thinking about how this should be shown in history classes all across the United States.
