The Proposal – Film Analysis | Sex, Gender and U.S. Society The Usual Proposal: How Hollywood “True” Love Promotes Hegemonic Gender RolesThe Proposal tells the same formulaic story that many romantic comedies have told over and over again of two young white people who despise one another falling in love in a matter of days. Ryan Reynolds plays Andrew Paxton, the 20-something loyal executive assistant to Sandra Bullock’s character, Margaret Tate, a powerful editor of a large publishing company. When Margaret, a young Canadian citizen, finds out that she is about to lose her job and be deported, she blackmails her loyal assistant to marry her so that she can stay in the country.

10 Things I Learned: The Tin Drum By Curtis Tsui {*style:<a href='javascript:void(0)'>*}Prev Director Volker Schlöndorff declined producer Franz Seitz’s requests for him to adapt The Tin Drum many times, as he thought the novel was so narratively complex as to be unfilmable. He changed his mind after his own memories of childhood seaside visits began to give him ideas for ways to visualize the book’s beach scenes. Schlöndorff found the linguistic complexity of Grass’s German text so daunting that he was inhibited in his attempts to adapt it. He found a way around this problem by writing the first draft of the script in French, with the help of Jean-Claude Carrière, then translating it back into German (pictured here). Schlöndorff was convinced that David Bennent would be perfect for the role of Oskar when, to “screen test” the boy, he took him to Oktoberfest and observed the expressiveness with which he responded to his surroundings. 10 Things I Learned: The Tin Drum
România în chiloţi | Andrei Pleşu Uneori, şi ziarele „serioase” lasă să se strecoare, în josul cîte unei pagini marginale de divertisment, sau de „diverse”, cîte o bîrfă în doi peri despre celebrităţi din sport, cinema, sau politică. La noi însă, procentul de tabloidizare a tuturor ziarelor şi a tuturor posturilor de televiziune a atins cote îngrijorătoare. Fenomenul este simptomul unei primejdioase degradări sociale, morale şi intelectuale. Bunul gust şi buna cuviinţă sunt în comă. România în chiloţi | Andrei Pleşu

În chestia fericirii În chestia fericirii De ceva vreme, jucăria mea preferată se cheamă Kindle. Dacă mai e cineva care nu ştie ce este Kindle, spun acum: un aparat care stochează cărţile pe care le vrei într-un format electronic foarte comod. Fiind vorba, mai ales, de cărţi de pe piaţa anglofonă, utilitatea jucăriei e maximă.

Bucureştiul explicat străinilor Bucureştiul explicat străinilor În urmă cu ceva vreme publicam un reportaj despre o după-amiază petrecută în capitala Austriei, o după-amiază în care am descoperit Viena drept un oraş fabulos prin normalitate, unde totul pare a fi la locul său, nimic nu e prea mult sau prea puţin. Nimic ostentativ. Este acel oraş al zilelor de duminică, cu clădiri perfecte, cu străzi impecabile şi cu oameni care par a fi mereu îmbrăcaţi în haine de sărbătoare. Entuziasmul călătorului de ocazie pe care îl manifestam în acel articol a fost însă temperat de către un cititor care a întrebat, probabil cu o uşoară ţîfnă: „Dar de ce nu scrii aşa ceva şi despre Bucureşti?“. O întrebare la care, recunosc, aş putea găsi multe răspunsuri – toate defensive, dar care mi-a rămas în minte nu ca o toană „patriotică“, ci mai degrabă ca o provocare.
Barnes & Noble Stores Closing - Beginning of the End? After disappointing holiday sales, particularly of its Nook eReader, Barnes & Noble seems to be struggling: there have been a rash of store closures across the U.S. Before Christmas, stores that should have been gearing up for the holidays seemed to be out of stock and just biding their time. According to this article on the Melville House site, if Barnes & Noble gets out of the brick and mortar game, that would mean the closure of some 1,362 stores. For a couple of years I’ve been predicting in column after column that B&N was going to get out of the brick-and-mortar business of selling books, but seeing it finally kick into high gear was no fun.

Cât știi de fapt atunci când ai ajuns cu adevărat să știi ceva. “În fiecare toamnă, explic unui grup nou de doctoranzi ce înseamnă de fapt un doctorat. Și cum lucrurile sunt greu de descris în cuvinte, recurg la imagini.” ( Matthew Might, profesor de informatică în cadrul Universității Utah) Imaginați-vă un cerc și imaginați-vă că el reprezintă toată cunoașterea umană. În momentul în care terminați școala primară, începeți să știți câteva lucruri. Când terminați liceul, știți ceva mai mult. Continua sa fortezi limitele!  Continua sa fortezi limitele! 
We tend to be unconscious of behaviors that are causing pain and unnecessary suffering in our lives. If we could just become more conscious of behaviors that are leading to the pain in our lives, we would be a lot happier. Today we can start giving up some of the things in our life that are causing this conflict. 10 Things you need to stop doing today to be happier 10 Things you need to stop doing today to be happier
I didn't review Samsara, but I wrote about it after being blown away in the only way it should truly be seen... on the largest screen possible. Like Baraka and films such as Koyaanisqatsi before it, Samsara is a completely wordless documentary that tells its story through images and in that respect holds a close relationship with my #1 documentary of the year. Director and cinematographer Ron Fricke tells a tale of our world today, where we've been and where we're headed with such eloquence you don't ever feel as if you are being bombarded with a message as much as you are coming to terms with reality. Shot over five years, in twenty-five countries on five continents, Samsara is truly majestic. Unfortunately most won't get the opportunity to see it on the big screen as I did, but even on the small screen it should manage to have an impact.

„Lumea în biblioteca mea” - argument - Prima oară am aflat despre Fundaţia IREX acum mai bine de cinci ani, pe cînd eram încă studentă la secţia de Biblioteconomie şi Ştiinţa Informării de la Litere. Cîţiva reprezentanţi ai fundaţiei veniseră la facultate să ne spună despre un nou proiect care avea să înceapă în ţara noastră. Cel care ne vorbea era volubil şi entuziast, dar se lovea constant de o masă compactă de feţe imobile, ale unor tineri neîncrezători şi, pe alocuri, plictisiţi. El îi dădea întruna cu Bill Gates, Internet, iniţiative, biblioteci, iar noi... Noi nu cred că am înţeles, atunci, ce amploare şi ce impact avea să aibă cel ce va deveni, ulterior, Programul Biblionet.
Psalmul XLV Cu viaţa care trece-n zbor, Stăpîne, mă lupt de dragul vieţii ce rămîne, şi zi de zi ca-ntr-un turnir turbat cu monştrii sufletului meu mă bat. Îndop cu cîlţi gîtlejul care-mi cere taìn de bucurie şi plăcere Şi, Doamne, universu-ntreg mi-l smulg din inimă, şi-l suflu ca pe-un fulg. Dar oare-atîtea doruri ne-mpăcate să fie, Doamne,-ntr-adevăr păcate? Dar dacă-aceşti şacali interiori sînt doar năluci pe care, uneori, chiar Tu le înzestrezi cu dinţi şi coarne ca să-mi surprindă sufletul în carne? Ei şi!
Pe 4 decembrie s-au împlinit douăzeci şi cinci de ani de la moartea lui Constantin Noica. Nimeni nu pare să-şi fi adus aminte de el cu prilejul acesta. Nici presa, nici scriitorimea, nici editurile care l-au publicat şi, ceea ce e încă şi mai trist, nici noi, cei care am avut privilegiul să-i fim aproape. Sînt sigur că ne-ar fi iertat. Nu-i plăceau festivităţile omagiale. „Să nu mă sărbătoriţi! O aniversare uitată
