A REVIEW OF CONTEMPORARY MEDIA

 

 

Notes

1. "Physicist, Purge Thyself" Chicago Tribune Magazine (22 June 1969) [return to page 1]

2. Lars von Trier’s Melancholia also seemed as if it might be pertinent to this essay, and the author violated a personal vow of sixteen years’ standing never again to see another Lars von Trier film in order to watch it, to his (the author’s) regret, since for von Trier, not unpredictably, the destruction of the Earth and extinction of the human race turns out only to be a misanthropic wish-fulfillment and vindication of his own pessimism and clinical depression, a big told-you-so/good riddance to us all.

3. Josh Levs, “Officials probe 'unusual' mass deaths of birds in two states,” CNN.com, January 4, 2011. http://articles.cnn.com/2011-01-04/us/arkansas.bird.mystery_1_greg-butcher-red-winged blackbirds-national-wildlife-health-center?_s=PM:US

4. “An Interview With Bela Tarr: Why He Says ‘The Turin Horse’ is His Final Film,” http://www.indiewire.com/article/bela-tarr-explains-why-the-turin-horse-is-his-final-film (February 9 2112) [return to page 3]
