The Dark Knight

The-Dark-Knight-poster3,987 mots

English original here

Dans ma critique du Batman Begins de Christopher Nolan, j’ai affirmé que le film génère un conflit spectaculaire autour des enjeux les plus élevés qui soient : la destruction du monde moderne (symbolisé par Gotham City) par la “Ligue des Ombres” Traditionaliste contre sa préservation et son amélioration “progressive” par Batman.

Pentti Linkola

2,025 words

Translated by Harri Heinonen and Michael Moynihan

Introduction by Michael Moynihan:

Is Pentti Linkola posing the most dangerous thoughts mankind has ever considered? Or is he this planet’s only remaining voice of sanity? Living an ascetic existence as a fisherman in a remote rural region of his frigid homeland, the Finnish philosopher has pondered mankind’s position vis-à-vis the earth it inhabits and dares to utter the unspeakable.

The visual style is pure Peter Jackson: The elves look like Tolkien/Peter Jackson elves; the trolls look like Tolkien/Peter Jackson trolls; etc.
