The Mist

WITH US OR AGAINST US

(Edit) 28/09/2018

The characterization is weak and the acting generally mediocre, but the visual emptiness of the actual mist creates decent suspense from a seemingly irrational predator - created by a Frankenstein-like scientific meddling with the purported primal forces of nature.

The characters' reaction to their predators and, more importantly, to their own fears - dominated by Marcia Gay HARDEN as a Christian fundamentalist - serves as a rather crudely-dramatized but effective allegory for the so-called War on Terror as White people battle both the unknown and each other.

One Day in September

AN EYE FOR AN EYE

(Edit) 21/07/2018

Little more than Zionist propaganda, this pseudo-documentary offers little context in order to make Israelis seem to be the victims and Palestinians the victimzers. With no political context to allow the viewer to understands the events shown, one is simply witness to the merely tragic - for there is no great tragedy here to speak of. This is a shame, since the world in which we live is far more nuanced than the simplistic Us and Them worldview on show here.
