Por qué es tan malo Paulo Coelho, por Héctor Abad Faciolince

En su libro de mayor éxito, El alquimista (1988), un pastor de ovejas andaluz viaja hasta las pirámides de Egipto en busca de un tesoro. Antes de llegar a su destino se encuentra con el gran mago que posee los dos pilares de la sabiduría alquímica, es decir, sabe destilar el elíxir de la larga vida y ha fabricado un huevo amarillo, la piedra filosofal, con cuya ralladura se puede convertir en oro cualquier otro metal. En su viaje hacia las tumbas de los faraones el alquimista le ha revelado al muchacho otro secreto: “Cada hombre sobre la faz de la tierra tiene un tesoro que lo está esperando”.

Luego le explica que si no todos encontramos este tesoro personal, es porque “los hombres ya no tienen interés en encontrarlo”. Yucatán: Identidad y Cultura Maya - Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán.

Being John Malkovich (1999) For years, Charlie Kaufman’s screenplay for Being John Malkovich enjoyed a mixed reputation as a script far too brilliant and original to ever get made. The prevailing wisdom held that the script was too weird, dark, and meta to ever make it onto the big screen, even if the filmmakers did somehow manage to get an actor as prickly and difficult as Malkovich to play a version of himself as a sketchy, narcissistic, sex-obsessed jerk. 9. 8.

Club’s ongoing series of beginners’ guides to pop culture’s most notable subjects: filmmakers, music styles, literary genres, and whatever else interests us—and hopefully you. This installment: Belle And Sebastian. Belle And Sebastian 101“Belle And Sebastian were the product of botched capitalism. It would be nice to say they were the children of socialism, but it would be a fib.” So begins a typically wry paragraph in the liner-note “biography” that accompanies If You’re Feeling Sinister, a spot-on album that did as much to build the legend of Belle And Sebastian as any of the playfully arch myth-making the band members undertook in lieu of traditional promotional efforts around its 1996 release in the band’s native Scotland. (’97 in the United States, brought across the pond by EMI subsidiary The Enclave, which was in the process of collapsing by the time the band made its own Stateside trip.)

Philosophy v science: which can answer the big questions of life?

Julian Baggini No one who has understood even a fraction of what science has told us about the universe can fail to be in awe of both the cosmos and of science. When physics is compared with the humanities and social sciences, it is easy for the scientists to feel smug and the rest of us to feel somewhat envious. Thomas Kuhn: the man who changed the way the world looked at science. Fifty years ago this month, one of the most influential books of the 20th century was published by the University of Chicago Press.

Roger Allam as Peter Mannion in The Thick Of It. A critical movement saved Margaret from burial; here’s why it deserved it  “My dear Tavy, your pious English habit of regarding the world as a moral gymnasium built expressly to strengthen your character in, occasionally leads you to think about your own confounded principles when you should be thinking about other people’s necessities.”

—George Bernard Shaw, Man And Superman The story of Margaret, Kenneth Lonergan’s wounded yet triumphant follow-up to 2000’s You Can Count On Me, has been told many times, with good reason—it’s the rare case when critical advocacy has made a direct, tangible difference in the life of a film. This happens in less-tangible ways all the time, especially with true independent films, which rely on good notices to compensate for a shortage of promotional resources.
