Movie review: “Hail Caesar” (hit)

A film about film.

Hmmm… the title puzzles me! Hail ~ abduct?? Hijacking capitalism in the name of entertainment…… and meanwhile, making a fool of communism!

Any system that seeks to improve the world without taking into account the redemption of individuality (vocational identity, etc.), and puts too much trust in the transformative power of material/economic factors, will become a joke.

Christ – the one who mocks (not fights) Rome?

Showbiz – just another opium of the masses, or the dream factory that makes the realization of utopia possible, even within the present world order??


Can the intelligentsia ever be in real solidarity with the proletariat?

The scene where Mannix slaps Whitlock silly is the key to the entire movie.
