“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.”

– J. Robert Oppenheimer

In 1954, Ishirō Honda transformed the trauma of war into art with Godzilla, a science fiction film about a gigantic radioactive beast that rises from the depths of Tokyo Bay. The primordial force of nature firebombs Tokyo with its atomic breath, leveling the city and killing thousands. Honda created a walking metaphor for the nuclear devastation of World War II – a fantastic, out of this world creation that could embody the fears of an entire nation.

Godzilla is the granddaddy of kaiju cinema, but it’s also a very poignant and mournful drama – a Japanese film made at a time when the country was still reeling from the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as H-bomb testing in the Pacific. Since then, Godzilla has become an international icon of devastation, spawning nearly thirty sequels. The King of Monsters endures because he is the perfect conduit through which to exorcise the predominant fears of our time.

Movie Review: Blue Jasmine

Blue Jasmine PosterBlue Jasmine
Director: Woody Allen
Screenwriter: Woody Allen
Cast: Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard
Sony Pictures Classics
Rated PG-13 | 98 Minutes
Release Date: July 26, 2013

Written and directed by Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris), Blue Jasmine stars Cate Blanchett (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) as Jasmine, a Manhattan socialite who moves to San Francisco to live with her estranged sister after her wealthy husband Hal (Alec Baldwin) divorces her.

Her sister, Ginger (Sally Hawkins, Happy-Go-Lucky), is trying to get her own life together: she just ditched her rough around the edges husband Augie (Andrew Dice Clay) after he lost all their money in business dealings with Hal.

Unable to afford the high-rises of Manhattan after her divorce, Jasmine forces herself back into Ginger’s life where she meets her sister’s latest boyfriend, Chili (Bobby Cannavale), a nice enough blue-collar guy who doesn’t live up to Jasmine’s still-upper class standards.

Jasmine is a frenetic ball of nervous energy, wounded and abandoned. With the help of booze and anti-depressants, she attempts to put her life back together piece by piece. She gets a day job, goes on dates, and slowly learns how to fend for herself.
