Yojimbo was apparently heavily inspired by the 1942 film noir classic The Glass Key (based on the Dashiell Hammett novel. Whose other novel Red Harvest actually has a much more similar plot to the film and is a possible influence ) and Kurosawa was heavily influenced by John Ford's westerns. Which is why some of Kurosawa's contemporaries in Japan dismissed him as being "too Western"

Fistful of Dollars is basically a unlicensed remake of Yojimbo but Leone's style is strong enough that it manages to be it's own thing.

Tokyo Drifter and Branded to Kill were both supposed to be generic Yakuza thrillers like the sort that Nikkatsu pumped out in that era (sometimes entire series of films would be filmed all at once and released all in the same year. They were working that fast.) but Seijun Suzuki was bored of making those sorts of films and though he'd be getting more and more experimental in his work years before that he decided to just go hog wild on what would've otherwise been a by the numbers crime film and then go even crazier on Branded to Kill. Something which eventually lead to him being fired from Nikkatsu and blacklisted for "making films that make no sense and make no money".

The Trumpites have performed a blood sacrifice by the Washington monument causing it to rise from the earth revealing that the towering obelisk was merely the dilz of a gargantuan marble colossus which is now rampaging through Washington spewing clouds of noxious gas from every pore.

John Carpenter is wonderful because I've seen some interviews with him when he was a young up and coming director and he was already like this back then so it's not just him being a crotchety old man.

What's this from?

Operation Gladio by Paul L. Williams

A friend of mine is reading it and sent over that excerpt.

It's about the CIAs operations in Italy and how they financed fascist terrorist groups with drug money. Completely nuts and somehow involves both Frank Sinatra, a kooky far-right Masonic off-shoot, and the Pope.

I need to read it myself.

Am I the only one who thinks the 90s obsession with selling out the was mostly justified and the total abandonment of that idea in recent years is a sign of how commercialised our society has come?

Like I understand that a man's gotta eat but still there still has to be such a thing as artistic integrity. You can't sacrifice it all at the altar of Mammon.

What got me thinking about the changes in selling out discourse in the last 20 years is a recent (actually almost a year ago but time has lost all meaning) conversations with my friend and collaborator where he said something along the lines of ,,I might be an unemployed loser on disability but at least I don't work in loving advertising." After we saw a saccharine bank commercial at the movies.

And how every other thing nowadays is #sponsoredcontent and the line between art and advertisment has become so vague that Adorno and Horkheimer would probably explode.

It's understandable (a man's gotta eat) but I don't know if understandable means it's a good thing.

It reminds me of how just before the financial collapse the arts in Iceland were heavily financed by the banks, which some or you might've heard were a bit corrupt, and as such artists were very vary of criticising any of that or making any work that could be even vaguely read as political. One dude did and was essentially black listed by his colleagues for rocking the boat.

I hope they don't chicken out and actually show the fights this time. KoTM has way too many fights where the battle itself is obscured by fog or rain or clouds or the ocean so you don't actually see the fight itself.

Also I'd like to see a stuntman in a rubber suit slam into a highly detailed model building smashing it to bits Which won't happen but a man can dream

Yeah Wendy Carlos was instrumental* in putting synthesisers on the map and even helped with the development of the OG Moog synth.

Millions of robot fart sound enthusiasts all over the world owe her a great debt. Almost as great as the debt they're in from buying all those synths and modules.

America is a settler-colonial nation much like South Africa, Israel and northern Ireland where the native population was pushed out or outright massacred to make room for settlers. Which is why American conservatives and northern Irish unionists both idolize Israel because they're doing today what British settlers did in America and Ireland hundreds of years ago.

Also in America there's the weirdo religious segment that's wildly antiemetic but supports the existence of Israel because they believe the state of Israel is necessary for Armageddon and of course no one gets to heaven until Armageddon.

The Fisherman by John Langan is a good book.
