“Hard to be a God” (2013) film review – 3/5 or 4/5 or…? 😥😷

I watched the entire movie, or did I? 

What’s the use of paying attention to nothing? 

My take is more of a Christology/Anthropology – it’s hard to be human/messiah. In short, it’s hard to be ME 😈

Incarnation is crucifixion is resurrection is salvation! What the fuck?? No, this can’t be! It must not be! There must be something more………. 

After the movie, I watched a raw full chicken being mounted on a grill, & a woman squirting in her orgasm…… So, is this Earth or Arkanar? 

Is it possible to rate an experience (like a movie) highly even if you hated going through it? Yes, but only if you believed that you gained something (spiritual/moral/intellectual) out of it… 

I enjoyed reading/watching all those reviews (around 10!) even more than the film itself! So, does that mean that it was good (or even a great), then?? The film would have been an utter waste of my time, if not for the analysis/insight that came later. Really? Isn’t that how life itself is? 

Compare with my recent watching of “The Tempest” – Prospero ~ Don Rumata – along with the Intro. to Auden’s commentary on it. 

Is everyone who rates anything, automatically a critic? 

Compare this with futurist techno-dystopias. Is that any better? 

Identify the important moments to get some ideas about the meaning of the whole – the first scene, the prologue, the title scene, the cuts (blank gaps) between sections, the thematic/philosophical lines, the epilogue, & last scene. 

Wasn’t the Middle Ages the period when the Church (Christianity?) was at the peak of (political) power?!
