I’m going to start a new daily post creatively titled: Quote of the Day.
It’s unique I know – but hey, we all LOVE quotes don’t we?
So for the Pompous Film Snob’s first quote, I give you this:
“Some folks hate the whites who hate the blacks who hate the clan.
Most of us hate anything that we don’t understand.”
From Kris Kristofferson’s fourth album: “Jesus Was a Capricorn”
I don’t think truer words were ever spoken. This is a great song that talks about contradictions and the hypocrisy that we carry with us every day. Think about in the terms of film; ask most people who’ve seen “Mulholland Dr” or “Antichrist” what they think about it.
“Oh, I hate that fuckin’ movie!”
“I have no clue what it’s about. Fuck it.”
Now that may be a slight exaggeration – but I’m not to far off. You know what I do when I don’t understand something? I look it up, I read peoples blogs, someones thoughts about the film/book/lyric/theory – whatever it is. It’s so much easier to “hate” something or someone then to understand it.
Got any good quotes? Suggest them and they may just find their way on here.
