Decadence: Decline of the Western World
All civilisations rise and fall. For 300 years, the Judeo-Christian West has been the world's pre-eminent civilisation. So, where is the West on the timeline? Many have theorised about the fall of the western world but now we appear to have the evidence. Negative birth rates, ageing populations, debt-laden economies and immigration - the West consumes without consequence, loves without longevity and lives without meaning. Decadence, a simple powerful essay-style documentary, asks if the West has peaked? And due for a new renaissance or a final dark age

The goal of every culture is to decay through over-civilisation; the factors of decadence - luxury, skepticism, weariness and superstition - are constant. The civilisation of one epoch becomes the manure of the next. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

(de) wrote: Fuck, I mean fuck, Jesus Christ, this is probably the worst movie of the year if also one of the worst movies ever made I wouldn't recommend it to anyone not even kids, this movie was so awful it made me want to kill myself, I honestly don't know where to start with this movie because it's so awful
(jp) wrote: It suffers from defaulting to indie tropes often, but Sarah Polley's visual craft is just too sensuous and bold to resist. That sexy, sun-glazed color saturation... oh, man.
(us) wrote: Interesting concept, good music and spirited acting by Saif and Rishi pull the film thru which is otherwise let down by Deepika's wooden charms and emotionless acting(whatever the director Imtiaz or Saif might say in their interviews now!). The Brazilian gal Gisele is a pleasant surprise as she looks the part of a Punjabi girl to the core. The icing on the cake is the ending shot of Neetu Kapoor as the aged Harleen. Vinatge!
(ag) wrote: This is one hell of a survival flick. Jack O' Connell is a sick fucking bastard and it contains two scenes which are extremely disturbing. The finale is brutal.
(kr) wrote: This was a very interesting albeit quirky film. The main characters apparent incipient insanity works to develop the plot, if you can call it that, and allows Melissa Leo to really use her skills to enchant the audience. Her facial mannerisms and ability to use body language to convey her feelings is extraordinary. The rest of the cast really shines in their multiple roles, both contemporary and civil war era.

(de) wrote: The second film of innovative Director Wes Anderson who even from the word go had such a distinct style & quirk.The story of Max Fisher a very ambitious but poor performing student at Rushmore (Top School in the Area) and all his antics & unexplainable ability to rope people into his plans.The film's strengths lies in the quirky dialogue & unusually charming performances from the likes of Bill Murray & Jason Schwatrzman. I found it funny in its own way & it's always enjoyable to watch a film that your not sure in what direction it's going.

(kr) wrote: I wouldn't exactly call this a good film. It's not just lightweight, it's positively stupid at times. The main character is so guileless and ineffective that she's more often annoying than anything in else. Generally, the film tries to be a cutting edge, late 60s piece of sci-fi, but with it's Bob Crewe soundtrack and snickering attitude towards sex, it feels more connected to mid-60s lounge culture than anything cutting edge in 1968. Still ... I have a real soft spot for this film. I like Bob Crewe's soundtrack ... a lot (Music to Watch Space Age Girls By). I like Paco Rabanne's costume design. I like the fact that outer space looks like the inside of a lava lamp. I enjoy the cast ... I enjoy "Barbarella" despite itself.
