When our children and grandchildren look back to assess our performance during this era, they will bitterly note that during a time when we should have been aggressively expanding public investment to employ all of our many unemployed people, launch bold projects for national renewal and progressive development, save our planet and light a rocket under our massively underutilized productive capacity to build a prosperous future for our progeny, we instead chose to get bogged down in ridiculous and priggish bean-counting and budgetary hand-wringing. Right now, it looks like we will be known as the generation that chose stagnation, blinkered bookkeeping and fiscal tunnel vision over dynamic national progress – a weak, cowardly and unimaginative people – the Lamest Generation.

CB 124:  Stanley Kubrick’s “Paths of Glory,” 1957.

General Broulard:  These executions will be a perfect tonic for the entire division.  There are few things more fundamentally encouraging and stimulating than seeing someone else die.

Colonel Dax:  I never thought of that, sir.

I avoided Paths of Glory for years because I assumed Kubrick’s earlier work wouldn’t—or couldn’t—yet possess his trademark visual style. I assumed it’d be a more generic-looking, prestige war film.  I thoroughly enjoyed being proven wrong.

“The fluidity of Kubrick’s camera movements during the trench sequence just prior to the disastrous mission is positively orgasmic. His exquisite framing and use of depth in the later courtroom and prison scenes is about as masterful as it gets.” - from my review of this goddamn masterpiece

The thing I love about NASA is that if something doesn’t work or doesn’t exist, THEY BUILD A NEW THING, on a relatively small budget

and then they don’t bogart the technology with copyright stuff
