A Commonplace Blog: Magical thinking about death

We think too much of death and not nearly enough of dying.

Fragments | Lukas Vasilikos

GIFs from Marco Berger’s El Primo (The Cousin) which is the best short film in the omnibus Volatile. It’s also his most blatantly erotic to date. As you can see.

What’s Wrong With Sentimentality?

See on Scoop.it - Readin’ ‘n’ Writin’

A conversation with Leslie Jamison, author of The Empathy Exams

Rick Powell's insight:

Well, part of what she says is right and part of what says is wrong. Short Term 12 is manipulative because the kids are ciphers. The change happens within and to the caregivers while the kids are the catalysts. They’re interchangeable. Their particulars don’t matter. All that matters is that they’re fucked up. So Jamison isn’t being particularly emotionally intelligent in this case. Short Term 12 isn’t troublesome because it wants us to feel for the caregivers, the adults.  They deserve some sympathy, too. It’s troublesome because of the things it doesn’t want us to think about. The problem isn’t sentimentality. The problem is dishonesty.
