This week, Nathan, Peter, Richard and Simon rise up against their more viscous oppressors, launching blistering attacks on their shot composition, plot conveniences and crimes against good taste. Because, in a very real sense, we are all The Almost People.
Notes and links
Once again, Richard refers to Walter Benjamin’s 1935 essay The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, which we linked to last week. He also mentions a response to Benjamin by American philosopher Susan Buck-Morss, a book called The Dialectics of Seeing (1989).
Picks of the week
Simon recommends Moon (2009), a science fiction film starring Sam Rockwell. No spoilers.
Peter has been watching The Good Fight, a TV series in which the reliably fabulous Christine Baranski plays a lawyer working at an African-American-owned law firm in Chicago. You can watch it on Paramount+. Its sixth season starts next year.
Nathan comes out as a fan of Kurtzman’s Star Trek in general, and of Star Trek: Lower Decks in particular. The Series 2 finale screened just a couple of days ago in the US.
