Europa '51 / Roberto Rossellini
The topic of Europa '51 is typical Rossellini: A socialite, Irene (Bergman) loses her young son and the tragedy plunges her into a search for meaning. A communist relative introduces her to the lives of poor people, whom she soon begins to help. Eventually, once clear about what she wants to do with her life, she becomes unable to function in bourgeois society and her increasingly "strange" behaviour prompts her husband and relatives to think she has lost her mind. This is adult cinema, not exactly the kind of movie we could ever expect from an American director. Especially these days of near-total neoliberal escapism and wholesale infantilization.
Bicycle Thieves / Vittorio de Sica
Below, one of De Sica's classics, Bicycle Thieves (1948).
^5000The mainstream imperialist media lie CONSTANTLY. Literally 24/7. And it's getting worse.
All of them do it: radio, tv, the newspapers, the movies. The internet. No exceptions.
The corporate Big Lie is pervasive and totalitarian. CBS does it. NBC does it. ABC does it.
CNN does it. FOX does it. NPR does it. And of course the NYTimes and WaPo do it.
Thousands of "diverse" voices telling you the same lies. Enough to convince anyone.
