Tchaikovsky didn’t make films… oh. Tarkovsky.
This Žižekism on Piketty’s ‘Le Capital au XXIe siècle’ caught my attention:
sometimes utopia is not anti-pragmatic, sometimes to be modest in a false way is the greatest utopia
In light of recent events, Žižek’s comments on Tarkovsky’s Solaris:
What we get here is the lowest Male mythology: the idea that Woman doesn’t exist on her own. That a woman is merely a man’s dream realized. Or even, as radical anti-feminists claim, the man’s guilt realized. Women exist because male desire was impure. If men cleanses his desire, gets rid of dirty material — fantasies — Woman ceases to exist.
Wonder what happens when Woman changes to Capitalism?
