By the way,

 

with

 

super satirical

 

film art

 

battling through

 

the

 

Temple Theatre

 

it is clearly

 

time to address

 

the implicit

 

links of

 

Elektra,

 

Thor,

 

Black Widow,

 

Spider-Man

 

and Vision,

 

Captain America,

 

Ant-Man,

 

Forbush Man,

 

Iron Man,

 

Hawkeye

 

and 

 

War Machine/

 

Iron Patriot

 

to

 

Fearless

 

Kathryn Bigelow,

 

Towerin' 

 

James Cameron,

 

Angsty

 

Sofia Coppola,

 

Creepy

 

David Cronenberg,

 

Scowlin'

 

Clint Eastwood,

 

Recedin'

 

Richard Kelly,

 

Intrepid

 

Irv Forbush,

 

Canny

 

Jason Reitman,

 

Rebellious

 

Ridley Scott

 

and

 

Vigilant

 

Clement Virgo,

 

so drop by the

 

Zone Warriors

 

section

 

of the site

 

and experience

 

all of the

 

latest insights-

 

including

 

a thought

 

or two

 

concerning

 

the allegorical

 

Stephen King

 

novella,

 

Elevation (2018),

 

at the end

 

of the

 

David Lynch

 

essay-

 

in the respective

 

essays of these

 

film artists. 

 

 

 

****

 

 

 

Also finally 

 

mostly rassled 

 

the Coppola essay

 

into workable

 

shape

 

in a 

 

Christmas treat

 

for the world.

 

.Bon appetit.

'It drove Stanny-boy

 

crazy.  He used to say

 

to me, 'Huey-

 

it was his nickname

 

for me-'Huey, they

 

see the films

 

five times, 

 

write me fan letters,

 

but the underlying

 

meaning

 

is lost on them.

 

They take

 

nothing away.'

 

- from p. 372

 

and

 

'...You'll

 

be miserable.  

 

You'll

 

be hated.

 

You'll fumble

 

around in the

 

dark, alone and

 

confused.  You'll

 

have little insight

 

as to the true nature

 

of things, not until

 

the very last minute, 

 

and only if you have

 

the stamina and the

 

madness to go to

 

the very, very end.

 

But most importantly-

 

and critically-

 

you will act

 

without regard

 

for yourself.

 

You'll be motivated

 

by something

 

that has nothing

 

to do with the ego.

 

You'll do it for justice.

 

For grace.

 

For love.'

 

from p. 532

 

of

 

the allegorical

 

Marisha Pessl novel, 

 

NIGHT FILM (2013)

 

 

 

 

****

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you just consume

 

pop culture

 

and

 

don't process it,

 

critcally,

 

or

 

try to elevate it

 

in your mind

 

and 

 

make it your own,

 

it's just sad.

 

 

- Guillermo Del Toro

 

 

 

!Plain old sad, 

 

people!

Fame

 

is a

 

false high.

 

 

- Nick Nolte,

 

 

from Rebel:

 

my life outside

 

the lines (2018),

 

p. 1

 

 

 

 

'With a book, 

 

you've got a

 

writer 

 

and

 

a director-

 

and the director

 

is the reader.'

 

- Sean Penn,

 

TIME,
