  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Commoners

    Didactique et bien réalisé !

  2. In Prague's rating of the film The Commoners

    Hadn't they picked that much from Shakespeare fan Ionesco: "Philology leads to Calamity!" (and Crime)? But then it wasn't possible: The Lesson where the quote belongs was first played in 1951, long after the botched aviary experiment that introduced the starling epidemic to America. The birds thrive in semi-domesticated landscapes, a way to say they'll disappear when the supporting civilization does - winged rats ha!
