Hail, Caesar! online movie review - Yet more horror-comedy
What 'Hail Caesar' suggests is that Hollywood is full individuals who are more or less dumb as rocks. Clearly this isn't so. There is talent around Hollywood.
What does Hollywood choose to do, however? Produce every sort of horror movie imaginable. Here the horror story is that individuals who are shaping what is popular are more or less as dumb as rocks which is horrifying. What is even more horrifying is that talented individuals are now making every sort of horror story imaginable in Hollywood.
Joel Coen specialize in life is absurd ha ha ha horror-comedy movies. Ethan Coen specialize in life is absurd ha ha ha horror-comedy movies There is no unifying idea that is secretly whispered around Hollywood but rather whatever individuals are willing to believe is ratified by the Hollywood powers that be as long as a horror movie is made.
Scarlett Johansen must of held that 'Under The Skin' and 'Lucy' were somehow or other about some sort of female empowerment but what the movies are is horror movies. Someone wants to express the horror of movie making and that is more than acceptable. 'Snowpiercer' with Tilda Swinton was a horror movie done under the guise of addressing class conflict.
All beliefs are ratified by the Hollywood powers that be as long as horror movies are made. The powers that be in Hollywood demand that individuals of Hollywood act horribly vis-à-vis some totally phantasmagorical goal vis-à-vis pushing a culture where individuals act horribly vis-à-vis some totally phantasmagorical goal.
The Hollywood powers that be push that the horrible movies and totally without influence fan groups of celebrities are a way to fully realize capacities of individuals of Hollywood and associated fan groups but individuals of Hollywood are making painful to watch horror movies and no one sensible cares what the views of makers of such movies on any issue are. No one sensible cares what the views of Joel Coen on any issue are. No one sensible cares what the views of Ethan Coen on any issue are. No one sensible cares cares what the views of George Clooney on any issue are. Some individuals from time to time do listen politely to George Clooney expound on philanthropy but that is different than caring about what the views of George Clooney on philanthropy are. Why was George Clooney directed to southern Sudan? Southern Sudan was clearly a large extremely violent disaster for the foreseeable future. Vis-à-vis the powers that be George Clooney was to be an exemplar of what philanthropy can achieve, with George Clooney apparently showing that philanthropy achieves absolutely zip.
The Hollywood powers that be are basically academics who possess 'large views' on culture who can talk to studio heads, directors, scriptwriters, stars and critics. Could this work? This has worked. Leftists in Hollywood in the 50's were the sorts of individuals who listened closely to Herbert Marcuse.
What are the Hollywood powers that be after? Look at the times. Many individuals hold that these are some of the most horrific times ever with Hollywood, adhering to the advice of the Hollywood powers that be, basically pushing towards putting the horrific Donald Trump in the Oval Office who promises to make the US 'great again'.
Academics historically have frequently been for totally upending the 'system'. Now, however, academics pro upending the 'system' are not firebrands but rather talk softly about assisting individuals fulfilling capacities and can be, for example, a connected woman who holds an academic chair who talks softly and can appear to very sympathetic at least when individuals buy into the psychological nonsense that she attempts to foist on individuals but who will attempt to blindside individuals, while smiling sweetly, given individuals do not buy into the psychological nonsense that she attempts to foist on individuals. Basically the modus operandi of such a woman is 'I am very psychologically insightful vis-à-vis you or you are going to have terrible difficulties'. As it turns out individuals fulfilling capacities demands that individuals make horror shows.
What 'Hail Caesar' pushes is that Hollywood is full of individuals who are more or less dumb as rocks which basically is what about half the 'news' stories in Breitbart 'news' are about with Hollywood also being presented as full of liberals by Breitbart 'news'. Hollywood, however, is full of progressives not liberals. Hilary Clinton, who is a terrific presidential candidate, however, is a liberal, not a progressive, but can work with conservatives on a strong national defense.
Joel Coen is voting Republican this year as only horrific presidential candidates fit with the zeitgeist of the movies of Joel Coen. Ethan Coen is voting Republican this year as only horrific presidential candidates fit with the zeitgeist of the movies of Joel Coen. Donald Trump is most definitely a horrific presidential candidate.
For sensible individuals checking up on the campaign of Donald Trump vis-à-vis who to vote for vis-à-vis the 2016 Presidential election is uncalled for as Donald Trump has proved beyond any question that Donald Trump is a horrific presidential candidate who is unfit to be President with no more proofs required. The plan of the Donald Trump campaign is to deliver a new horror each day as horrors are frequently checked up on but Donald Trump has already established beyond any question that Donald Trump is a horrific businessman who rips individuals off, horrific deal maker who can't run a business without going into bankruptcy, horrifically unpatriotic - favors foreign tyrants over a terrific US president and horrific presidential candidate whose only goal vis-à-vis campaigning is to bring forth new horrors each day.
'Hail Caesar' is much more horror than comedy. 'Hail Caesar' is a terrible movie.
