Romeo and Juliet would eat Tide Pods.

Stupid teenagers.


#9469

O churl, drunk all, and left no friendly drop to help me after? I will kiss thy lips. Haply some poison yet doth hang on them.

#9471

Yeah, I think that is bull. Surely FREE WILLY was a far greater influence.


#9472

It is idiotic for a post- Soviet Russia to have a ministry of culture.


#9473

It’s almost as if modern Russia is still somewhat totalitrian


#9474

It’s ridiculous that they have censorship of this sort, and even more ridiculous that it be directed at a film that’s critical of the Soviet system, but the existence of a Culture Ministry (and therefore a Minister to run it) isn’t unique to Russia.

Most countries have one, the arts aren’t just culturally important to a country, they’re financially important too, involving huge sums of money, all of which makes them politically significant, even when the art itself doesn’t depict political figures.

It’s a bit strange that America doesn’t have an equivalent post. I get that it might be seen as “government poking it’s nose in” (and maybe even a little bit Stalinist) but the american approach is the exception, not the rule.

This is our minister;

#9476

Yeah, I’m almost disappointed too.


#9477

Don’t be disappointed. Look, to make up for it someone made a sequel to Deep Blue Sea instead.


#9478

How can they not call it Deeper Bluer Sea


#9479

2 Deep 2 Blue Sea!


#9480

That looks like it’ll be a nicely mad bit of fun when it comes out.


#9481

That’s my hope. The first one was a really fun popcorn flick.

As a non-American I have no attachment to Mister Rogers, but I loved Marielle Heller’s Diary of a Teenage Girl, so I’m glad she’s getting more work.


#9485

Bah, he looks nothing like him


#9486

The Heinz Museum in Pittsburgh has a whole exhibit area devoted to Mister Rogers, including some actual set pieces. Quite nostalgic…and a bit unsettling.

I like Tom Hanks, but I really can’t see him as Mr. Rogers. But hey, good luck to them. Hope it turns out to be good.
