Ten Favorite Films

Vertigomovie_restoration1,520 words

Author’s Note:

The following text is a scrap rescued from obscurity and buffed up a bit. In 2002, a reader of VNN suggested that the site’s movie reviewers post their “Ten Best” lists. I found it impossible to settle on just ten best films. So I decided to produce a “Favorites” list instead. I came up with more than thirty movies.

Remembering J. R. R. Tolkien:
January 3, 1892 to September 2, 1973

435 words

“I am in fact a Hobbit.”—J. R. R. Tolkien

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien is a favorite author of New Left “hippies” and New Right nationalists, and for pretty much the same reasons.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

917 words

I am sorry to report that I was disappointed by The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first installment of Peter Jackson’s film trilogy based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit.

Jackson’s first mistake was trying to make a trilogy at all. The Hobbit is shorter than any of the three volumes of The Lord of the Rings. Thus its story could have been told completely and satisfyingly in a single movie of around two hours.

Tolkien: Maitre de la terre du milieu

J. R. R. Tolkien, 1892–1973

2,287 words

English original here, German translation here

En dépit de la dérision générale de l’establishment littéraire, qui ne put jamais comprendre son esprit naturellement noble, le Seigneur des Anneaux de Tolkien a été récemment élu comme la plus grande œuvre de fiction du vingtième siècle par des milliers de clients de Waterstone [chaîne de librairies en Angleterre]. La récompense est largement méritée, car le chef-d’œuvre de Tolkien est un classique du roman héroïque. Read more …

"I am in fact a Hobbit."—J. R. R. Tolkien

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien is a favorite author of New Left “hippies” and New Right nationalists, and for pretty much the same reasons. Tolkien deeply distrusted modernization and industrialization, which replace organic reciprocity between man and nature with technological dominion of man over nature, a relationship that deforms and devalues both poles.

But philosophically and politically, Tolkien was much closer to the New Right than the New Left. Tolkien was a conservative and a race realist. His preferences ran toward non-constitutional monarchy in the capital and de facto anarchy in the provinces, Read more …
