Film Studies and Other Shenanigans

Hi! I'm Kevin! Here I will talk about films, my filmmaking endeavors, and my unhealthy love for this magnificent art form. But I will also talk about things that I love outside of film. TV, books, video games, etc. World class nerd for everything awesome. Follow me on twitter @Kevin_Ketchum and my regular blog where I do full reviews, analysis, and more detailed insight into films -

The Apartment (1960)

Ya know, I used to live like Robinson Crusoe; I mean, shipwrecked among 8 million people. And then one day I saw a footprint in the sand, and there you were.

Don and Peggy define themselves through their work all too often, and if that work is taken away from them or eroded of meaning, they’re stuck in a world where all they can think about is how little meaning life has outside of the meaning you construct for yourself. But even that meaning collapses in the face of despair or sorrow or death. Without work to give them meaning, without each other to bounce off of, what do Don and Peggy have left? Only the knowledge that they, too, will die, and that much of their lives have been hollow attempts to fill that void.

     No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torsos twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.

I’ve known this for years now watching this show but tonight more than ever I can see that Mad Men is a show about people dealing with huge shattering monumental lonely cores that they can’t seem to figure out how to fill or how to live with.

Why don’t you just come out and say there’s an allegation the prince had a gay experience?
