    I think you made reference to War Room in your thread post and one definately gets the impression that some of these political consultants would be just as happy on the other side of the fence practicing their craft. There's another film/DVD where some of these folks went down to South America to pitch in...Our Brand is Crisis, that kind of makes this point.

    Reagan gave some speech in the 80's in Mississippi, I think, where he repeated a phrase about States Rights a number of times and that was like racist pixie dust. Don't forget that a substantial amount of the reason Democrats came to power in the south was by exploiting racially sensitive issues. It was only when the Party kind of aligned itself with the Civil Rights movement etc that the GOP got this opportunity.

    I'll let you know if I ever see it

    As far as Racism...Careful, Atwater was not saying that he thought he could accomplish a racist agenda or anything. What he was saying is that his party could appeal to racists (or as I would put, it racially sensitive) southern voters without appearing to be racist themselves.

    There's nothing inherently racist with a cut in capital gains tax rates. You could say that it is incidentally racist in that the beneficiaries of this tax would be disproportionately white. That's not what Atwater is saying at all. He's saying that racist voters in the south would extrapolate "Capitol Gains Tax Cut" abstraction into better for whites/worse for blacks for a variety of reasons ...disproportionate white beneficiaries, less tax revenue for the nanny state to coddle people of color, etc. whether that was the actual outcome or not.

    Hey, was invading your conversation with Hawkguy and saw you mentioning Lore and Cate Shortland. You'll definitely flip for her first film Somersault if you haven't already seen it. Right up your alley (I assume. You're one of the people I always take note of on the Criterion forum).

    It was a party movie that relied on the viewers having read the book for any real characterization and the film loses most of its meaning in the changes they make. Unacceptable garbage, but I suppose one man's trash is another man's treasure.

    No, I never particularly regret spending money on seeing a movie. Oldboy was entertaining which is more than I could say for Kick-Ass 2 or The Great Gatsby. Even in those cases, as bad as they were, they gave me perspective. You could never know a good movie if you didn't see a bad one.

    I know you don't rate anymore, but I agree with your 2 rating of the Oldboy remake. It had some goofier parts, but I though Lee's take on the film was passably entertaining.

    I knew you were a Criterion fanatic but figured you'd be a little more discerning. Holy crap!!
