How Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai Perfected the Cinematic Action Scene: A New Video Essay Jonathan Lethem knows a thing or two about storytelling as well as about caped comic-book characters, and on a recent podcast appearance he accused films about the latter of an inability to do the former: “I think one of the least satisfying film genres I’ve ever encountered is the contemporary superhero movie, which just seems to me kind of dead on arrival. I can’t even get into the hair-splitting about, ‘Oh, but there are three or four good ones.’ I just don’t see any life there.” How can such big productions filled with so much action play out so lifelessly on the screen?

The 10 Best Movies Influenced by The Philosophy of Jacques Derrida Jacques Derrida was a French philosopher, particularly well known for his analysis of the semiotics of western culture through the lens of deconstructionism. Derrida is well-known as one of the most formative figures in post-structuralist and postmodern thought, as well as one of the most innovative thinkers of the 20th and 21st centuries. Through his analytical framework of deconstruction, Derrida was able to form an attempt to decodify the nature of culture’s use of symbols; aphorisms, and practices to delve deeper into the underlying consciousness of society and by extension, the underlying consciousness of individuals.
