In the end we should always return to reality.

This they did.
The guy then uses the bloated, floating corpses to build a raft...

Interesting discussion as to the viability of this, here:
http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/2005-10/1130775058.Gb.r.html


The new season of Homeland, with a female president elect (so far) describes the state in a pure power vacuum.
Its clear that Knollery was set up to be a stooge upholding a state of permanent failure coordinated by rogue deep state elements.
The narrative to spin and perpetuate this would include references to the vulnerable feminine nature and how shes not to blame for anything.

The show is absolutely top notch cinematically, it may be the best film noir stuff out there, ever. This is because it was made with a purpose far beyond entertaining and making money.

Someday soon I am going to dedicate an entire weekend to doing nothing but watching Homeland.

Thatll be a dark weekend, I assure you.

Now this wtf

I started writing a screenplay, just to be writing, practice. Since I'm not a native english speaker I will need help with the dialogue. I'd be interested to learn where you /any of you natives find the speech unnatural, and how you'd say it instead. Feel free to tear it to shreds. I must learn.

I'm pretty good at writing dialogue in Dutch, but no one is ever going to watch a Dutch movie. This is my predicament.

Code:


              INT. OFFICE HALLWAY - DAY

              A cleaning cart rolls through shiny corridors at a quick
              pace. Suddenly it takes a turn and enters a doorway, and
              another. Then it arrives at a closed door. A hand goes to the
              knob and pulls it down. The doors open. Two startled faces
              look towards the camera, one blond, in his late 30's, MIKE,
              and another brown haired, over 60 years old, PETROWSKI, who
              is of Russian descent but has been living in the US for
              decades. 

                                  PETROWSKI
                        Hey! What the hell man?

              We now see the person who was pushing the cart. It is a man
              of Semite origin: MOSHE.

                                  MOSHE
                            (very quickly)
                        I am sorry sirs I must clean.
                        Please, step aside for moment. I
                        need to get under desk. No
                        inconvenience for you at all, I
                        make very very quick. Please sir, I
                        must make.

              Petrowski looks at Mike, bewildered.

                                  MIKE
                        You gotta admire a sense of duty.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        Is this some kind of joke?

              Looks around the room.

                                  PETROWSKI (CONT'D)
                        Why am I here?

              Mike laughs thinly and waves to Moshe.

                                  MIKE
                        It's okay boss. We'll be done here
                        in a minute and you can get under
                        the desk.

                                  MOSHE
                        Yes but boss...

                                  MIKE
                        Who's the boss, Moshe!

                                  MOSHE
                        I am boss, sir!

                                  MIKE
                        That's right. Here's a working man
                        for you Petrowski. Here's what it's
                        all about.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        What's what about?

                                  MIKE
                        America. Freedom of choice. Working
                        hard. Making a difference.

              Petrowski is taken aback. Moshe begins to move back to the
              door.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        I respect that, Mike. That's why I
                        come to you with this info...

                                  MIKE
                            (interrupting)
                        Yes indeed, damn fine coffee. I
                        will tell the wife to think about
                        it. She's awful set in her ways
                        however so...

              The door shuts.

                                  MIKE (CONT'D)
                        Slick, Petrowski. Do they teach you
                        that in Russia?

                                  PETROWSKI
                        What?

                                  MIKE
                        Talking to the cleaners about state
                        business.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        What? You were talking to him about
                        the constitution for Christssakes!

              Mike sighs. He gets up and fetches a thermos of coffee.

                                  MIKE
                        We've got a long way to go.
                        Ideology, Petrowski, is what you
                        put into a mans head. Information
                        is what you try to keep out of his
                        head.

              Petrowski is getting angry.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        Okay Mike. You got it all figured
                        out. In the meantime we're being
                        spied.

                                  MIKE
                        Don't get paranoid on me Petrowski.
                        Tell me the beginning. How old were
                        you when this happened?

              But Petrowski isn't finished yet, he feels humiliated.

                                  PETROWSKI
                            (pointing to the door)
                        Are these actually soundproof?

                                  MIKE
                        Don't worry.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        Okay, Mike. I'm, not worried. Some
                        Arab guy is able to just walk in
                        here with his cart which for all I
                        know carries a camera or a bomb and
                        nothing stands in his way.

                                  MIKE
                        You're not a target. You're not a
                        priority. That's why we're in this
                        room. It's not secure.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        I'm not what? I come to you with
                        information on...

              Looks around him suspiciously

                                  PETROWSKI (CONT'D)
                        I come to you with information and
                        I'm not a priority? For what should
                        I be a target?

                                  MIKE
                        You're not.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        Yeah I got that. But for what am I
                        not a target?

                                  MIKE
                        Can we get back to the information?

                                  PETROWSKI
                        Why? It's not a priority is it?

                                  MIKE
                        It's pertinent.

              Petrowski stares at Mike blankly. He suddenly laughs.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        Yeah Mike. Okay Mike. Let's get
                        back to the info. I'm not worried.

                                  MIKE
                        Okay then. How old were you when
                        this happened?

                                  PETROWSKI
                        I was four.

                                  MIKE
                        So this was...

                                  PETROWSKI
                        Nineteen fifty two.

                                  MIKE
                        So now you're here, sixty years
                        later, about to retire. And you
                        come to me with a story.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        It's a true story.

                                  MIKE
                        It's a strange story. But then
                        again, you are Russian. It'd be
                        strange if it wasn't... strange.

              Petrowski grimaces.

                                  PETROWSKI
                            (sarcastic)
                        How well you know us.

                                  MIKE
                        So you were having breakfast with
                        the family, and a general came to
                        take your dad away.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        Yes.

                                  MIKE
                        And your father didn't come back
                        for a year and a half.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        That's right. And when he did he
                        was deformed. I mean mentally. They
                        had been screwing with his head.

                                  MIKE
                        But he was able to pass on this
                        information to you.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        Eventually. Years later.

                                  MIKE
                        Why?

                                  PETROWSKI
                        Why what?

                                  MIKE
                        Why did he come forward?

                                  PETROWSKI
                        I guess he'd been afraid.

                                  MIKE
                        I don't know Petrowski. It's a
                        strange story.

              Petrowski opens the door again and looks outside. The hallway
              is empty. He closes it again. He turns to Mike.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        I didn't tell you the whole story.

                                  MIKE
                            (ironically)
                        You didn't?

              Petrowski slowly sits down

                                  PETROWSKI
                        The general who came to our house,
                        well that was not actually a
                        general.

                                  MIKE
                            (irritated)
                        Right.

              He looks at his watch.

                                  PETROWSKI
                        He did however have a large
                        mustache.

                                  MIKE
                        Facial hair, huh? In Russia of all
                        places. Impressive.

              Petrowski looks at Mike, penetratingly, waiting.

                                  MIKE (CONT'D)
                        Your story is finished? This is it?
                        A man with a mustache came to take
                        your dad away to fry his brain?

              Petrowski shakes his head, almost without moving it. He keeps
              staring at Mike intently. Mikes face suddenly shows an
              expression.

                                  MIKE (CONT'D)
                        A man with a mustache, huh.


In season 6 the character Max is given a last name.

Quote :

Max Piotrowski
Played by Maury Sterling, Max Piotrowski is Virgil's brother. Max works with Virgil in his security consulting business. He is depicted as socially awkward.

lol

Nice. I was wondering how that had gone.

I was just telling a friend today, with some surprise to myself, how much I prefer it to the other shows, where it comes to real human story arc and committed acting. It's supremely unpretentious. But with balls of steel truly. I love it.

Yeah, the sheer brutality of the psyches in the show is almost hard to watch. It is definitely a tragedy of epic proportions. I've never seen a more truly tragic moral hero than Vic. Absolutely unpretentious, I agree with that. But after watching a couple episodes I have to stop, it's just to much to take in all at once.

Yes!
It leaves me properly shaken too. And the show doesn't ever relent. This makes it the only show I love wholeheartedly.

I had to go run a few miles after watching the last time, just to physically work through the brutal and honest intensity of the show. I think The Shield is far superior to The Wire, although I liked The Wire too. But I never felt an urge to go running after watching The Wire. The Wire leaves a feeling of lingering depression, that is the side of truth it is on, which makes sense now in light of that call to violence on Twitter by its creator, but The Shield never leaves me with a feeling of lingering depression. In fact, the lingering feeling left by The Shield is really too primal to even have a name.

Ha, yes, I often did the same.
When I first started watching it I was in LA, at night in a motel. After an episode I would burst out of my room, down into the hot night, just roaming for a while, with a feeling that has no name.

Hahaha

Triumph. These guys.

I was coming in here to recommend Silicon Valley, which is the funniest stuff Ive seen in one of these shows, but was realizing yeah but he's still in the Shield. All else pales.

Still SV is very nice work by Mike Judge. For certain I can say that he has the best end of episode credits ever. I replayed the credits yesterday, several times which was a hilarious experience.

I do have to watch SV sometime. Also Homeland.

Right now I am making my way through Vikings. I love this show. Far more than Nietzsche, it is Vikings that tempts me most to convert to the 'will to power' as ideology or philosophy. This show is pure will to power, similar to The Shield. Only Vikings is far more pleasant to watch; the tensions are more manageable and human, whereas the tensions in The Shield are simply out of this world and often unbearable.

Right now I am making my way through Vikings. I love this show. Far more than Nietzsche, it is Vikings that tempts me most to convert to the 'will to power' as ideology or philosophy. This show is pure will to power, similar to The Shield. Only Vikings is far more pleasant to watch; the tensions are more manageable and human, whereas the tensions in The Shield are simply out of this world and often unbearable.

I have to agree. Vikings wasn't even like watching a show, it was like watching my own soul painted in blood on inner the wall of my skull, or heart. Where I guess it is in fact being painted.

An ode.

I wrote:
URUZ

Pure masculine power. Raw energy, completely unconditioned. Unacceptable standards of strength. A mans maximal capacity for lust. The drive that causes murder and war. Blindness of losing oneself in what one is without goals.

Digging downward-forward. Ploughing through life and leaving fertile chaos and upheaval as a trail. Mammoth strength. Marching barbarian army. The synchronized heartbeats of a million soldiers. Drums in the deep.

Roar of a monstrous predator already too close to see. Encroaching darkness. Male Earth. Pillars being drilled into the ground. Pillars being raised. Primordial phallic strength. Brute rhythms. Satan.

Excess force flows back into the Earth. The kundalini turned downward.

The need for resistance. Powerful jaw. Raging bull. Walking the Earth in search of pain to grow by. To know oneself the hard way.

Titanic determination. All or death. The force that blindly enslaves. Strength that builds empires.

Worst movie I have probably ever seen: Wonder Woman.

The only good thing about this movie is the main actress. She is great. Not as good as she could be, but considering the shit she had to act in I am surprised she even pulled of as much character as she did.

This movie is so bad, it is not even comic... and it is not even tragic. It is worse than that. The entire movie is pure memes, and not the good kind of memes. It doesn't even have a surface, it isn't even superficial. It just... does not exist.

Well, I liked Linda Carter as Wonder Woman although she could not act well at all. Nice body though.

TRESPASS (1992)


Walter Hill, Director

Other than T2 this is my favourite movie from the 90s
the best soundtrack too, Ry Cooder.

Heres a link to a frame you have to zoom in on, ultra low res but its fitting. Its hard to find.

Typical scene that makes it a good movie
