What are people saying?

  • Brzesca's rating of the film Twelve Chairs

    Ellipse of soviet terminal Central. Bender as the historical sign (by way of Hegel & Hypollite) caught in stasis of an uncodeable axiom. The point is no longer the chairs but how "can" we "sit." Ascent thru the ideology as object signifier, in the breathless atmosphere of the end it becomes transgression. Zakharov and Russ fever. Redemption thru system. Becomes zealous allegory.
