  1. halibutacid's rating of the film The Entire History of the Louisiana Purchase

    A film about the exigency of structuring myths in a post-protestant America founded equally upon trust in God as upon the disenchantment of the world, and about the essentially paranoiac character of all structuring myths. Its feverish apocalypticism recalls Derek Jarman's The Last of England, while its concern with "the real effects of living a fiction" prefigures The Act of Killing.

  2. El Biffo's rating of the film The Entire History of the Louisiana Purchase

    A ridiculous cocktail of staged and archival footage, ramblings about UFO abductions, alien impregnation, hate speech about Jews and The Beatles, mixed with old ads for home appliances and atomic test footage. Is this supposed to be Oppenheimer's "History of America"? Really nothing about The Louisiana Purchase in this film. It makes me wonder about the more absurd elements in Oppenheimer's "The Act of Killing"...
